A role of a school should be to educate through an unbiased source and fostering a safe environment for students
Zoë Zizzo (she|her|hers)
01:37:53
To help students learn how to think critically
paraskevi

Schools should facilitate discussion and help students recognize their own potential.. “I cannot teach anybody, I can only make them think” - Socrates
Divya Shah

provide a safe and nurturing place for students to grow and learn
Nunazriah Dhahrulsalam

The role of the school is to encourage courage in challenging your pre-existing notions and understanding- both learning and unlearning
Elizabeth Shvarts

to foster creativity curiosity and a zeal for understanding
Matthew Kadaev

The worst part is when misinformation becomes so normalized that it is not addressed properly. Or, when groups of people promote misinformation and this affects everyone but especially the youth. It causes immense fear for no reason sadly.
KRISTEN WANG
01:53:08
same!
Priscilla Maryanski
01:53:26
Throwback to when a global health pandemic sounded like a “rumor.”
Lucas Chu
01:54:03
Obviously, this is the first time misinformation can be life threatening for everyone in contact
Chyonika Roy
01:54:12
I agree Tasmia I think fear mongering in polarization everyone is susceptible to their own set of facts.
Tasmia Afrin
01:54:14
When misinformation becomes so common and true facts are seen as "propaganda"
Tasmia Afrin
01:55:14
Also when it is higher officials spreading inaccurate opinions and information, a lot of the people who look up to them spread that information without really educating themselves with the truth
Lucas
01:56:12
Tasmia- yes, especially when a usually respectable political establishment is occupied by a moronic Cheeto man and his far-right cronies.
Chyonika Roy
01:56:36
Yep Lucas

Tasmia Afrin

^^ I was just talking about this with my friend in Taiwan. Didn't Tang say they helped beat the virus and they have a mission to create a government
Lucas Tardif
02:00:52
Like my grandpa carries a Glock
Lucas Tardif
02:01:30
I mean not against respectful gun use, but isn't a semiauto in an urban environment going too far?
Lucas Chu
02:01:36
That includes just checking in with friends to see how they’re doing :)
Elizabeth Shvarts
02:01:41
It really starts with leaders and making sure that policy isn’t political, having experts share information without censorship
Tasmia Afrin
02:01:58
yes thank you!
Elizabeth Shvarts
02:02:03
also being open-minded and being willing to teach as well as to learn new information

I think what we ca do to stop misinformation in schools is to address the stakeholders principal and staff, student and build coalitions like SLT's in school
Elizabeth Shvarts
02:03:38
If our policy targets the broader department of education should we start with our school/principal
Chyonika Roy
02:04:14
I agree Liz I think even being with staff and teachers as well
