The global pandemic has disrupted the ways we live, work and learning. Silver lining in this health and economic crisis is an opportunity to reimagine what school education could be and find new ways to address current social and educational challenges. In this presentation I will describe some of the most burning challenges in Australian education and offer practical, evidence-informed solutions to build fairer and more inclusive education system that would offer all children world-class education that they deserve.
