All schools can use the disruptions in Education to re-examine the fundamentals of PreK-12 teaching and learning. As the world evolves and the social, emotional and academic needs of children and adolescents continue to shift rapidly, educators must repeatedly ask,
What does it mean to prepare students for “modern life” in the early 21st Century?
Regardless of what may be ahead, prioritizing the well-being of students and school personnel will prepare communities to meet challenges, adapt to ongoing changes, and create opportunities to flourish.
Where to Begin
Oliver Burkman (Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals) makes plain that the challenge of this moment is not to squeeze more out of the hours in each day by achieving greater efficiency or increasing our productivity. Independent schools are notorious for adding more to the calendar each year, without taking anything away. To make time for things that matter (i.e. big rocks), we have to give up other things that matter (i.e. big rocks).
Most schools have way too many big rocks.
