New School Project 

In 2020, school leaders worldwide faced the unprecedented challenge of a global pandemic, COVID 19. In response, AAIE initiated and facilitated weekly conversations. The outcome of these conversations is a collaborative, sustained inquiry into that compelling question “What have we learned that may change our schools for good in all senses of the word?".

As this world tears us apart, sane leadership on behalf of the human spirit is the only way forward.
