What I Believe

I believe that business leaders are irrelevant to the educational system.

I believe that educators are the only ones who will eventually be able to create powerful reform in the system.

I believe that teachers and students are equally responsible for student learning.

I believe that all students deserve to be held to high expectations.

I believe that high expectations have nothing to do with how much homework teachers assign, how strict a teacher’s policies are, or how high a student’s GPA should be.

I believe that rigor deals exclusively with the authenticity and intellectual demand of tasks that students are asked to do.

I believe that, despite the current culture of education, teachers have the power to shift the educational climate.

I believe that change will happen one classroom at a time.

What do you believe?
