Over the next few weeks, I will have an opportunity to speak at a number of school board association conferences across the U.S. For those of you outside the U.S., our school boards of education are most frequently the principal body of governance for our schools. They are made up of representatives from the community who campaign and gain their position by citizen voting during general elections.
I’ll be delivering one of my standard addresses, but would also like to share comments from education practitioners — from you. What would you say to a group of school board members, in the interest of promoting progressive schools — and you have only that 10 second elevator ride?
I’m asking for a one sentence comment here, on 2Â¢ Worth. If you would like to contribute something longer to this conversation, please write a blog entry with your message and tag your entry with “sbe_comments” or include “sbe_comments” in the body of your blog article. I will be aggregating these entries and making appropriate messages available to my audiences.
