Episode 61: “I Don’t Remember Anyone Asking Me”

Kevin and Gerardo sit down with three Denver-area high school students to get their take on Remote Learning in spring 2020. In all the discussions and meetings over remote learning in this time of COVIS-19, it is striking to us how little student voice has been a part of planning for this, perhaps the most significant moment since the advent of compulsory education. For all our talk about cultural responsiveness and student voice in schools, we have continued the trend of ignoring those values when it matters most, leaving our young leaders and scholars bewildered, lost, and losing confidence in their own role in schools. A warning: their words are convicting, and indict all of us.
