Please post your comments and questions for our panelists and we will forward it to them.
Harriet Gould
01:18:32
This is important as teachers ARE essential workers! This must happen across the USA!!
Mr. A
01:21:09
I ask this question often but think it's extremely important. What are the opportunities for new roles in the school eco-system that have been revealed by Covid? If you could add a role under you right now that would allow you to maximize this opportunity. What would they be doing? Community Partnership Manager, Marketing Mgr., Public Partnership Specialist etc. Are you seeing the need for backgrounds beyond education to become contributors to increasing Education's role in securing a solid footing for the future of the country?
Kim Moore
01:24:01
Preach!
Winton Buddington
01:24:28
Can you elaborate on how in your systems the equity work and visions are getting operationalized in the school and classrooms?
Dr. Jaime Aquino, Senior Vice President, Discovery Education
01:24:42
So true! Thanks for your courage Christina!
Erika Maldonado Giraldo
01:24:59
Totally Agree! Thank you for that… (insert clicking fingers here).
Natasha Taylor
01:25:08
Absolutely agree Dr. Kishimoto!
Harriet Gould
01:25:28
Fabulous that women are moving up in the leadership ranks!!
Jesus Gomez
01:28:35
Teaching people how to be courageous and confident to speak up without fear of being alienated by the status quo.
Alicia Abney
01:29:16
Do any of your districts do a form of Community Schools?
Diane Standring
01:29:26
Distance/Remote learning has made the disparity of student support at home even more obvious. What are some strategies that have been used to encourage parent support, communication, involvement and engagement in school decision making and student success?
Kim Moore
01:30:46
Across the country districts are "missing students." Unfortunately, the missing students are primarily our students of color. What steps are you taking to locate and support missing students?
Kim Moore
01:34:14
Breaking the 100 year old model of factory education has to be broken!
Winton Buddington
01:34:36
How are you engaging the voices of your students with the work taking place in your districts?
Rhonda Smith
01:34:51
Agreed. The old school factory model simply isn’t working.
John Alvarez
01:37:08
How are you changing the mindset of teachers and other school staff in regards perhaps to their long-held beliefs that they are providing equity when in fact it has been seriously lacking?
Mr. A
01:37:45
Awesome question John Alvarez
Alicia Abney
01:38:03
COMMUNITY SCHOOLS!!
Mr. A
01:38:04
Dr. Kishimoto - great point
Kim Moore
01:38:45
As leaders, who have a national voice, how have you used your voice to influence policy at the federal and state level to change policies that disadvantage students?
Mr. A
01:39:44
this is what I meant by a defined support role to manage opportunities such as this. School is bigger than academics. Kids can't learn with so much missing that we know we need for success.
Rubie Jones
01:39:47
We are seeing the decrease in early grades. We are using a Google Doc to track absences calling, texting, contacting family members, doing everything we can to see if we can serve the families if they are in need. My district is hybrid. Keeping in mind that EVERY CHILD deserves a FREE and FABULOUS education, it is hard when a child is not being brought to school. That student has a basic human right that is not being met.
John Mulroy
01:40:14
Dr. K! Thank you for calling attention to that. We thank and appreciate you acknowledging that our kids are everyones responsibility
Victor Wight
01:41:57
All of you would be great voices at the table when we gain a new Secretary of Education. We need people like you!
Harriet Gould
01:42:43
Victor, I agree!
Natasha Taylor
01:43:49
^^Definitely agree!

So inspired by you all... thank you for your passion and leadership!
Victor Wight
01:46:24
Being mindful of how many teachers are overwhelmed and our current teacher shortage, we must concentrate on what matters (not everything) Thank you Dr. K
