Our Kids Will Be OK

Our Kids Will Be OK

Despite the unprecedented nature of the pandemic and unique challenges it's posed, there are still ways schools have survived and thrived.

The pandemic has presented daunting challenges for school systems, and there’s an understandable fear that it’s been a “lost” year for students. But maybe it’s not quite as bad as we’ve been led to believe. Adam and Rachael sit down with Massachusetts principal Liz Garden take a look at the bright side and show how schools have risen to meet these challenges and grown in spite of the circumstances.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The response in schools this past year
  • How resilient students have been
  • Positive changes and opportunities

Liz Garden is principal of Leroy E. Mayo Elementary School in Holden, Massachusetts.
