Article Notice – Building a Plane While Flying: Crisis Policy Enactment During COVID-19 in Alberta Secondary Schools

This article scrolled across my electronic desk this past week.

Building a Plane While Flying: Crisis Policy Enactment During COVID-19 in Alberta Secondary Schools

Beyhan Farhadi, York University
Sue Winton, York University

Abstract – We use the metaphor of building a plane while flying to describe the enactment of educational policies by teachers during COVID-19 and theimpact of these policies on their ability to meet the needs of their students. Drawing from a series of three one-hour focus groups with seven teachers in Alberta, we apply critical policy analysis to describe the transition of public schools to pandemic education, especially in urban centers. This paper will begin by reviewing the dynamic policy context of school closures and reentry strategies and proceed to outline the diverseways school boards interpreted guidelines from the Ministry of Education. We discuss the frustration with and variation of policy enactment during the pandemic, especially with respect to priorities and barriers to addressing student wellbeing and access to educational and social supports. Finally, we describe the consequences of teaching through crisis as it emerges in a political context that has failed to respond to educator’sprofessional needs.

Newest issue of Human Technology is now online.

Note this table of contents update.

Dear Subscriber,

I apologize if this message is a duplicate for you, although I suspect you never received it when I dispatched it in June. (I have been away for several weeks and did not see that it was “undeliverable.”) So I am resending it, in hopes that it will now arrive in your inbox safely. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Cordially,

Barbara

Dear subscriber of the Human Technology e-notification service,

The newest issue of Human Technology now has been published. This is an open submissions issue, although two papers were originally submitted to the thematic issue that was published last November. We also include our biennial public acknowledgment of those dedicated academics who have served as reviewers for our journal for the past two years. Use the link www.humantechnology.jyu.fi/archive/ for access to all the components from this issue.

Please note that this is the final issue to be published by the Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, Finland. The journal is moving to a new publisher (Centre for Sociological Research, in Poland) within the next month or so. I will be back in touch in a few weeks to provide instructions on how you can continue to receive notifications regarding published issues—as well as a new address on where to submit manuscripts for publication consideration.

Until then, enjoy reading this issue and, for those readers in the Northern Hemisphere, have a lovely summer.
