As I began to finally get back into a routine, I get a notification: the fifth largest school district in the United States is taking a pause.
Much of my educator community lives in Las Vegas, and works for Clark County School District. As the district and city that provided my initial educator start, that laid the foundation for my career, it holds a special place in my heart.
Reading about this, this pause, subsequently hearing from people about it, was hard. I don’t know what we can do–what we can collectively do that ensures a quality educational experience for all. What I do know is that this is not sustainable.
To anyone and everyone still in the trenches, know — pause or shutdown, online or in-person — I am in awe and thankful for all you are doing, and as for the rest of us: it’s time to find better supports and solutions.
