The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the education sector. But it has also led some schools and school districts to embrace innovative staffing and scheduling strategies that could be valuable post-pandemic. FutureEd, Education Resource Strategies, and EducationCounsel brought together educators for a virtual conversation with educators about how these innovations are playing to teachers’ strengths, providing them with more instructional support, and better serving students.
The conversation was moderated by FutureEd Senior Fellow Lynn Olson, drawing on her recent report, Teaching Innovation. Panelists included:
- David Rosenberg, Partner, Education Resource Strategies
- Victoria Jackson-Dinkins, senior coordinator of Opportunity Culture programs, Indianapolis Public Schools
- Felecia Evans, principal, Lander Elementary School, Mayfield Heights, Ohio
- Nilesh Patel, director of teaching and learning, Kairos Academies, St. Louis, Missouri
