As many of you know, I’m working on a document describing my dream school – a school that puts children before curriculum, involves students in leadership and creativity, improves student and teacher satisfaction and performance, is green (of course), and ready to prepare kids for their rapidly changing future. If you want to read other posts on this topic, click on the “Education Reform” topic below this post, or at the sidebar.
Today I’d like to share the first draft of this document for your review and comments. This is only a first draft, and I intend to spend many more hours organizing and tweaking, adding and deleting. I hope to do this with your help. Before you launch in, I’d like to thank the dozens of people who have talked with me about these issues and ideas, blogged about them, provided fabulous resources and models. No reason to reinvent the wheel, as the old adage goes. I hope to continue working with these folks, and with many others (including you!) as we identify potential problems, brainstorm solutions, and in general, make this vision better.
