There are many benefits associated with K-12 schools. In the SS2020 vision, with new schools within a short distance from one another in a campus, resources can be shared, peer teaching and learning opportunities are strengthened, and teacher collaboration spanning grades is made possible, among other things.
A vision of community hub schools with innovative curriculum developments and delivery is not some fantastical dream. Here in Sackville and across the province, educators are beginning the shift toward experiential learning and outdoor education. We must celebrate it, systematize it, and facilitate more movement toward a 21st century education to prepare our children for a changing world.
