Creating change from within: What we can learn from excellent schools
The recent experience with the Covid-19 pandemic turned many things upside down: No longer did the students come to the schools to learn, but the teaching had to come to the students’ homes. Since no education system could prepare for this, schools had to take initiative and reinvent themselves.
Big challenges often lead to innovative solutions. Many schools have outgrown themselves in recent months, proving that the crisis can also be an opportunity for school improvement and teaching development. The German School Award 2021 honored forward-looking concepts that have the potential to sustainably improve learning and teaching. In addition, the concepts are a source of inspiration for other schools, which can learn from the experiences made. Michael Schratz, who is chairman of the jury of the German School Award, shows what we can learn from excellent schools.
