Tell us about your idea

I have been wondering if more people -- students, parents, and teachers in particular -- should be planning and organizing for change, figuring out how to make their voices a bigger part of school redesigns that are already taking shape. Just offering up some resources to inform thinking here (see attachments).

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

testing because it is the foundation of this notion that learners should arrive at a specific outcome by a specific time... Todd Rose's book The End of Average is a great read on the topic.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

Hoping to get more voices involved in the redesign of schools moving forward.
