New Book Published

The COVID-19 Pandemic renewed interest on the question of what goals should be pursued by schools in a world rapidly changing and uncertain. As education leaders developed strategies to continue to educate during the Pandemic, through alternative education arrangements necessitated by the closure of schools, the question of re-prioritizing curriculum became essential. In addition, the anticipated disruptions and impacts that the Pandemic would cause brought the question of what capacities matter to the fore.  This question is explored by educators in Canada, India, Kenya, Mexico, Singapore, and Zimbabwe.  The closing chapter describes seven lessons of how to build an education renaissance after the Pandemic.  The book is open access.
