Keep Hate and Shame From Being Learned at School

Hate speech and actions are on the rise in our country.  It has long been our belief that leadership is first about who you are and how that informs your actions, and second about knowing how to perform the tasks of the job. Some are drawing a direct line between the words and actions of the POTUS and the polarization and extremism rising around us. We do, and that direct line is why.  Leaders, whether of  countries, states, towns, school districts, boards of education, schools,…

An Opening Day Message for Teachers and Leaders

Teachers are returning to their classrooms and leaders are thinking about and delivering their orientation day remarks. Most leaders have, themselves, also been teachers. They know that some days can be really hard and they remember the days when they were frustrated. But, they also know the better days, the ones that captured a light in a child's eye or the joy of stellar test marks that made a difference in a college acceptance or a performance that was memorable. They also know that…

 Even for liberal educators, even from the very start, didn't it strike everyone that Common Core was way too big, too sudden, too fast. A huge top-down governmental imposition that would transform everything from K to 12. Once it was locked into law at the federal level, we would never escape from it. There was NO testing, no confirmation that any of the ideas worked. They don't, unless the goal is to befuddle students.

3 Important School Leadership Lessons From Charlottesville

The values that built our country must be claimed and spoken out loud over and over again. A new school year has already begun in some parts of the country and we wonder what will be said about the weekend news. Schools cannot simply hope that this event and events like it will stay far away from our communities and outside of the walls of the school building.

Understanding the fear of failure in one's self and in…
