My views on what govts could do in regard to K-12 ed during #COVID19 pandemic:
We value, support, trust & respect students, educators & edu workers;
We will do everything we can to encourage & support students’ well-being, equity & learning, including providing $ & resources; 1/
We ask school boards, schools, educators & edu workers to use their profession judgment to work in collaboration with each & every student & their families to support students’ learning as best we can;
We will make sure there are specific supports for most vulnerable students 2/
All students will graduate on time & arrangements will be agreed for their high school qualifications/grades to be awarded differently & formally recognized for post-school destinations;
Formal accountability measures, standardized testing, & summative grading are suspended;
