Presented by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, Dominique Smith, and John Hattie

For Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey, Dominique Smith, and John Hattie, rushing back to the “old normal” may very well be the “greatest travesty that can arise for our schools.” Because the “old normal” won’t accelerate learning, won’t reignite engagement, won’t restore social-emotional well-being. Instead, we should draw on the many lessons learned so we can take advantage of this unprecedent moment in time to create better systems for schooling.

Fifteen months since the pandemic tested and tested again our school systems, we now face the biggest test of all: Where to next? Is it enough to rush back to the “old normal” without benefiting from the many lessons learned?
