“The one thing this pandemic has taught me is: We don’t have the answers. I don’t have the answers. Being humble, being vulnerable and being open about your needs – this space we’ve created here with SAS was the right conditions at the right time and that’s why I think so many state superintendents and their teams have taken a liking to this experience.” – @Javaid Siddiqi, PhD, President & CEO, The Hunt Institute
Accelerating learning and reducing achievement gaps was the impetus for organizing the Chief State School Officers Retreats this past year. The two-day event is co-hosted by @The Hunt Institute and @SAS at the SAS Executive Briefing Center. The retreats were a critical component of the Hunt Institute’s #COVIDConstituency initiative, which aims to translate public priorities and needs into policy action for policymakers and education leaders.
