Our Educational Problems and our Educational Vision?!
Yesterday, LaQuita Carter, reminded me that Diane Ravitch wrote for her new book that “our educational problems are a function of our lack of educational vision.” Coincidentally, I was re-reading Jim Collins’ Good to Great and the Social Sectors, a supplement to his earlier book, Good to Great to prepare for another client’s project. Part of what we must do as educational leaders–at all levels–is to set a compelling vision, and help others connect to that vision. When we do, and when great work for kids is part of that vision, we easily get teachers and all others swept up in that vision. THX LaQuita and THX Jim Collins for the reminders. JW
