Harvard SDP was kind enough to interview me about how districts and schools will handle the recession.

I’m glad they quoted me on process, and not just how the recession will impact revenues. Process is in the control of districts, revenue less so.

Shared ownership of decisions is vital when money comes off the table. Not only do you need the input of those on the front lines, but people throughout the community need to know the circumstances and context surrounding the tough decisions that ultimately are made. This will increase buy-in and agency during times of uncertainty.
