What if…?

How would our schools be different if every decision we made was truly based upon the best interest of our students?

Would…

… our classrooms look the same?

… teachers be evaluated in the same manner?

… instructional methods be altered?

… student assessment methods change?

… daily routines and utilization of time remain constant?

… personal interactions and relationships be affected?

What if money, resources, politics, transportation, and socio-economics were no longer “driving” forces behind educational decisions?

If every decision we made was based upon what is best for students, would we recognize our schools?

  1. We wouldn’t recognize the schools–which would be a good thing. However, the people still in charge don’t want change because their brains are tiny. ” A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”

  2. Based on the title I thought you were asking something differently. At our school we had the problem with making improvements since they were met with a “yeah but” so we tried changing to a “What If ” approach.
    The questions you asked are also important. We need to be asking these questions if we truly out student learning and concerns first.
