For the last twenty-odd years, at the start of the school year, I have found myself imagining what the ideal school setting would be for my children. I always envision an inclusive, equitable school environment that enables all children to learn, create, and thrive while preparing them for the workplace (and society) of the future.
At present, the educational system still has a long way to go in order to achieve these ideals.
In light of this, I would like to request that educators and policymakers consider implementing the following changes to help this vision become a reality:
I pray that this year we will begin to see changes like these implemented in schools around the globe and that they will lead toward a brighter future for all.
In addition, and perhaps most importantly, I hope and pray that this upcoming year will bring good health to all and that students from around the world will be able to learn face-to-face with their teachers and peers!
