The recent article Here's What NJ Kids Really Think About School From…
by NJ Advance Media for NJ.com is disconcerting. Why? It ONLY features feedback from a handful of students in affluent schools in NJ that have no problem with digital connectivity. So what about our students with varying ability levels, physical impairments, English Language Learners (ELLs), and students with Right to Intervention (RTI)? What about the experiences of students across the nation? The world?
If no reporting is being conducted by major media outlets in NJ/NY and beyond for our most vulnerable populations regarding the attitudes and experiences of those unable to get online in their attempts to provide educational continuity while schools are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, are we suppressing their collective experiences?
Please join me in this very special episode where I encourage you to share your story--no matter where you are in the world--regarding educational continuity during massive school closures during the pandemic. Whether you are a parent, guardian, student, teacher, or caregiver, I want to hear your story.
Be part of the conversation. Let your voice be heard.
