After a year of living with the pandemic, what schooling models might we turn to as we look ahead to improve the student learning experience? Could year-round schooling be one of them? What about online or hybrid learning? What lessons can we glean from the collective experience over these last 12 months that could be applied as we look ahead? Getting a better understanding of the impact these models could have on educators, students, and families—for better or worse—is a key part of knowing what might work as we head to the fall.

Pull up your chair to join Education Week contributor and blogger Peter DeWitt for A Seat at the Table as he talks with former principal now district leader Brad Currie and superintendent David Hornak to discuss the future of schooling and what it could mean for you, your school, your district, and your community.
