TAKE A LOOK INSIDE: The New School Project

AAIE is honored to announce the release of The New School Project, an endeavor started during the pandemic. In 2020, school leaders worldwide faced the unprecedented challenge of a global pandemic, COVID 19. In response, AAIE initiated and facilitated weekly conversations driven by the urgency and importance of supporting each other as we led and managed our way through the crisis. As the conversation progressed, we realized that, while still needing to support each other with urgent, high-stakes decision-making, we might also begin to explore the opportunity embedded in the crisis. We began to turn our attention to the question , “What have we learned that may change our schools for good in all senses of the word?”

The Great Exodus: Superintendents Resigned in Droves as Culture Wars Hit Schools in 2021

Robert van der Eyken, from Ecuador, recently shared an article from Newsweek discussing leaders of school districts in the US. "There's no doubt that we are seeing the greatest exodus of leadership at the district level that we have seen in this country," Dan Domenech, executive director of the School Superintendents Association (AASA), told Newsweek. School district administrators across the nation have left public education in droves this year, citing the COVID-19 pandemic, critical race theory issues and school systems already strained by growing staffing shortages."

The Alternative to Closing Schools

By now, it’s become impossible to ignore the toll that the pandemic has taken on children in America, particularly the most vulnerable. Evidence suggests that even students who endured relatively short school disruptions in Europe have suffered. As stifling as Britain’s pandemic rules for adults were, the country seemed determined, in stark contrast to America, to ask as little as possible of children.

Across the World, Covid Anxiety and Depression Take Hold

In Thursday’s Latin America Conversation, Rob van der Eyken, at Academia Cotopaxi in Quito, Ecuador, brought this article to our attention. As we all deal with the effects of the pandemic, this piece looks at the issues around depression and anxiety. "It is still unclear how much of a threat the fast-spreading Omicron variant poses, but fear and a sudden revival of restrictions have added to an epidemic of loneliness."

Tracking How the Coronavirus is Impacting School Districts

Schools systems are rebounding from the pandemic with nearly 100% providing in-person learning, five days a week for five to eight hours a day, according to a report from the Clayton Christensen Institute. But a study, based on a survey of 1,074 K-12 school administrators and teachers, showed that 80% of students were behind at the start of this school year compared to a typical pre-pandemic school year. Student absenteeism and supporting student social and emotional challenges have been some of educator's biggest challenges this school year, the report said.

Vaccinated Students at Hopkinton High School Can Temporarily Go Mask-free

A school district in the Boston area is trying a mask free trial.  And seeing faces is bringing smiles to many.  ‘Senior Owen Schnur and sophomore Evanya Mathur say their decisions were personal. Mathur wants to wear a mask until her younger sibling gets vaccinated. But Schnur says he feels safe to go without a mask because about 98% of his classmates are vaccinated.  Both of them say they’ve enjoyed seeing little things, like a teacher’s smile.
