Michael Fullan and I sit down for a conversation about hope and the opportunity to unite a nation through students and education. We are at moment in history where the global pandemic, divisive political views, and glaring inequalities just might be disruptive enough to create an opportunity to finally (really) transform public education. We discuss the path forward and provide a framework to unify and engage our communities by collaboratively building a Portrait of a Graduate (Learner), rooted in Deeper Learning and the six Cs: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creativity, Citizenship, and Character.
Learning needs to be student-centered and the entire educational system should to be oriented in such a way that students and teachers are liberated from the constraints that impede students from gaining the skills and dispositions to prepare them to solve the world's most difficult challenges.
