Dear Global Community

In these extraordinary times, we are all moving up a learning curve that often feels too steep to hang on. While we are all taking big steps back from our normal routines, it is important to remember that we are all doing it together. It is surely a rare moment in human history. The essence of compassionate systems thinking in moments of crisis centers on how to deal with the urgencies of the moment and do so in ways that simultaneously move us toward addressing the deeper sources of our problems.

We know that many of you are part of the ‘front lines’ of how our education systems serve children and communities in this crisis. We also know that we are connected in believing that the education needed for the future is very different from that of the past and that ‘returning to normal’ means going back to a system that is failing in critical ways. So, in the spirit of systemically embracing the challenge of the moment, we have rethought some of what we have planned for the coming months and created some new ways to connect and learn.

We look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks and months.
