When the Covid-19 pandemic ends, will we be able to put the children back in public school, give every child a standardized test, and continue school just as it was? Martha Carlson doesn’t think so. Founder and headmaster of a small progressive school in rural New Hampshire, Carlson thinks this might be the time for a national pause and some deep thinking about how school might need to be different.
Post-Pandemic School: When I do, I understand offers ideas and anecdotes from the private experimental school that Carlson and her husband founded in 1988. They operated Sandwich Community School for almost 20 years, exploring new avenues of learning that Carlson thinks may be pertinent for public schools in a post-pandemic world. Her book also examines several educational philosophers and how their abstract theories may assist our thinking about a new school paradigm. This book is for teachers and parents who know school will never be the same. Post-Pandemic School is available on Amazon.com in paperback and ebook formats.
Martha Carlson is a teacher, writer, and conservationist. She holds a PhD from the University of New Hampshire where she studied climate change and its impact on sugar maples and the New England forest. She and her husband taught environmental science to children at Camp Kehonka, Somerset School and Five Days of Sandwich. They founded their private high school to provide students with opportunities for place-based learning, independent studies and practice in democratic process.
