This edition of INSIDE THE CONVERSATION reflects on the feedback of a small focus group of teachers, parents and alumni organized by Dr. Tammy Jacobowitz and Ms. Shira Schiowitz. In response to the disruption caused by Covid-19, they wanted to think more deeply about the intersections between school, home and community and wondered what they could learn from this unusual moment in history about areas of potential alignment and tension between the values of school and home.
