What Have We Learned From The 2020-21 School Year So Far? | Inside the Principal’s Office

As many schools head into an extended break around the holidays, school leaders and administrators from around the world are using this time to reflect upon the success, challenges, and opportunities during the first semester of the school year which has undoubtedly been like none other. In this rendition of Educators Without Borders, we join school principals from across the pond as they share experiences from the first semester and take a forward look at the remainder of the school year and beyond in the ever-changing landscape of education. Panelists include Michael McWilliams (Elementary Principal, Savannah Elementary School, Texas, USA), Lee Hole (Head of Secondary School, GEMS International School, Dubai, UAE), and Dan Edwards (Principal, Woodstock Primary Academy, Leicester, UK). Hosted by Charles Williams (Principal, Plato Learning Academy, Illinois, USA).
