We Must Use This Moment to Transform Public Education | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the fundamental insufficiencies and inequities of America’s education system, shaking its foundations in ways that make it abundantly clear we must take this opportunity to rebuild from the ground up. There is now urgency to create a more resilient, flexible system centered on learners’ unique needs, circumstances, aspirations, and interests, rather than institutions. We must reinvent our public education system so it can powerfully and equitably support each child in accessing rich learning resources and opportunities."
