As a new school year begins, parents are excited and nervous to send students back into the classroom. To discuss education in this new reality, Lynda and Robyne were delighted to sit down with Dr. Tony Breslin, author of Lessons From Lockdown: The Educational Legacy of COVID-19 in what is set to be a trilogy of lockdown texts, Bubble Schools: The Long Road From Lockdown, which is due to be published by Routledge towards the close of 2021. The third book, Post Pandemic Learning: The Case for Reschooling Society, is due in late 2022. Breslin discusses the key lessons from his research during the pandemic, the importance of looking at the big picture as opposed to looking at issues in absolutes, and how to best approach the upcoming school year to stay innovative in education. Listen to the latest edition of Headstand to start off the school year with inspiring and enlightening lessons from Dr. Breslin! (music by Brian Elder, “Preservation Hall”, widerivermusic.com)
