In this sub-20 minute episode, host Ryan Tibbens discusses some of the less-talked-about aspects of the most common school models considered as school leaders across the country search for the best way to get students "back to school." In many districts that have used 100% distance learning through the first quarter of the school year, public pressure is mounting to open hybrid options that allow students back into the school building on a part-time basis. A model that is growing in popularity -- concurrent hybrid schooling -- allows in-person and online students to participate in the same class. That option sounds great at first, but a closer look at the logistics quickly reveal it to be just as limited as other options. In the end, we may not have any good options, so we're all left to discuss and debate which is the least bad. No matter what your school division's leadership chooses, do your best to support students and the ultimate goal of school -- to empower individuals and uplift communities.
