School today shouldn’t look like it did in 1990. We are preparing students for a different workforce.

School today shouldn’t look like it did in 1990. We are preparing students for a different workforce.

Change is difficult. There is comfort when our systems and services are familiar. As parents, there is comfort when our children’s school experience is just like our experience decades earlier. While comfort is easy; it isn’t what is required of us in public education today.

Public schools today are preparing students for a much different world. What it takes to be Ready for Tomorrow is changing at a rapid pace. Public education doesn’t need little changes; we need to stop nibbling at the edge. We need to continue to innovate, embrace the productive discomfort of change, and question the status quo. It isn’t going to be easy. It isn’t going to be celebrated by everyone. We simply need to engage our community and do the work.
