Message from Colin Seale, thinkLaw’s Founder and CEO
I struggle thinking about all the ways students without access, support, and fulfillment of their basic needs lack meaningful opportunities to learn during these unprecedented times. I struggle even more when I think about how these students often face the same inequitable barriers to learning during “normal” times. What fires me up and moves me past this is a “there’s always next year” motivation grounded in an urgent fight for equity: the chance to redefine what “normal” ought to be. My part of this is fighting for a new normal where critical thinking is no longer a luxury good. Maybe you will fight for a new normal where parents are treasured as indispensable partners in their children’s academic success or a new normal where every educator leverages tech as a transformational resource to expand opportunities. But no matter what the fight, I urge you to fight boldly, pushing through these abnormal times with abnormal bravery. Because going back to “normal” is simply not an option.
