It has been illuminating to listen to school leaders share how their systems are responding to the needs of their students, staff, and communities during the global pandemic. I need to summarize more concretely some of the key leadership behaviors and support structures that I have heard about in the Coronavirus Chronicles interviews, but in the meantime I thought I would share the following chart.

I don’t claim that this chart is definitive or based on a scholarly analysis of data. Instead, it is just a quick summary of my informal meaning-making so far. This chart is definitely a draft. If you have thoughts about how I should change it, let me know!
