WABI interviews Biddle about importance of resources during remote learning

Catharine Biddle talked with WABI about a study that sought to capture examples of interesting and innovative responses of Maine school districts to school closures last spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “To what extent is that creativity affected by differences in rurality, differences in access to particular kinds of funding, particular kinds of partnerships, and what role is the school district leader playing in amplifying the ability of the school to meet those needs,” said the associate professor of educational leadership. “Moving beyond crisis schooling: What can we learn from the innovation of Maine districts to support remote student learning from March–June 2020?” is online. Biddle and other researchers plan to create recommendations and best practices for schools this fall.
