The Effects of COVID19 on Schools with Dr. Noor Ali, Principal of Al Hamra Academy

October 31, 2020

Today, we’re talking to my friend, Dr. Noor Ali.  Noor is the principal of Al Hamra Academy, and an assistant professor at Worcester State University.

In Today’s Episode, we look at the effect COVID is having on schools, and how they’ve been planning around a crisis that no one could have been trained for, and trying to create the best-case educational scenario given the current circumstances.  Noor and I discuss the challenges of leading during a pandemic, such as managing the logistics of the crisis for teachers, parents, and students (including those with executive functioning challenges), while also being cognizant of the anxieties of everyone involved, and hopefully keeping a level head the whole time.
