Updated: Aug 28



With so much uncertainty and so little time to reflect, young people across the countryand the adults who care for themare asking: how can I make meaning of the COVID crisis? As part of our ongoing curation of COVID resources, the SoLD Alliance interviewed education leaders to learn how the science of learning and development can be used to navigate this pandemic and its implications for young people, their communities and the systems that surround them.


Relationships are the Glue” with Linda Darling-Hammond


We Need Congress to Step Up” with John B. King

We also asked Karen Pittman (Forum for Youth Investment), Zaretta Hammond (author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and The Brain), Gisele Shorter (Raikes Foundation) and Cynthia Leck (Transcend Education) about the strengths young people are bringing to this crisis, what concrete advice they’d give for navigating COVID and how to use the science of learning and development to tackle issues right around the corner.

Stay tuned for more resources and interviews to come. If you’d like to participate or help in any way, please email Samantha Kobbah at samantha.kobbah@educationcounsel.com.
