Uncertainty due to COVID-19, growing awareness of systemic inequities, technological barriers, and disruptions to the social fabric of schools have made teaching, planning, and supporting students much harder. The Suggestion Box invites schools and educators to describe their decisions in two simple sentences and to share them on social media channels used by students and families. Sharing short-term decisions increases trust and offers an alternative means for students and families, who are often excluded from planning, to provide feedback and share their experiences. Schools have described the process as simple, powerful, and liberating.
