The best way to predict the future is to create it. – Peter Drucker
Public education has long been defined by outside forces. From legislators with political agendas to media outlets focused on ratings, from government bureaucrats to think tanks, external forces with divergent purposes all influence both the perception and the policies that govern the very schools we serve.
The time is now to take back the conversation . . . to shape the future that is required of us. We serve the students in our care; we serve our school community. Let’s eliminate the noise and set the course that best prepares our students for the future. We must stop reacting to unfocused, bifurcated messages. The best future for our students, for our country, is for us to write the narrative, to set the course for public education.
