It is important, first, to consider if one should talk at all about the ‘new normal’. We may be justified in thinking that the COVID-19 situation, though longdrawn-out, is yet temporary and would eventually subside and schools can go back to being what they were. That response fails to take into account the intense experiences of the last one-and-ahalf years and the conversations that they have triggered, pulling both, schools and education, in new directions. There are suggestions about the greater use of technology and the change to a more technology-linked educational system. There are suggestions about separating those attempting advanced learning and those who would be satisfied with some basic elements of learning, the minimum essential required.
