Master Class: Hopes and Fears: Leading Schools in A Polarized Climate Two years of a global pandemic would be enough to test even the most stable school systems. But couple a global health crisis with the type of social and political polarization our country hasn’t experienced in decades, and what you’ll find are schools on the brink. School leaders are whipsawed and exhausted, often subjected to sharp and public criticism from parents, students, faculty, and others across the political spectrum. How do these leaders cope? How can they cope and continue to make sound decisions for their schools (especially in crises) when even the decision-making process swiftly devolves into heated political debate? Psychologists Michael Thompson and Rob Evans will offer some concrete steps that can make a difference. Get more details here. Friday, March 4,
