What do I love about Brene Brown?
She doesn’t believe in objectivity without the embracing of one’s subjectivity.
I think that once we realize that we are embroiled in the controversial topics facing education today rather than casual – or formal – observers of them, we can begin to heal and transform the world. You have to be in the ring, reflect there, and then – only then – can you transform the face of education. Her research is even more effective in the time of COVID-19. The need to have empathy, to be courageous and to bounce back “rising strong” is exactly what this world needs.
