We need a return to predictability in education and about schools. Students and teachers need to know from day to day and week to week what is coming next. Too often things come up unexpectedly and unpredictability. This can throw planned teaching and learning programs up in the air or out the door. Covid and it’s disruptions have not helped, but the system can often be its own worst enemy. We need for confidence and reassurance to be part of education’s offering. Sadly, all too often, that is not the case.
