We’re Doing Some Great Things in Public Education

I speak and write a LOT about the need for change in public education — necessary change because we haven’t yet met every child’s potential. That might be an unreachable target, but it doesn’t mean we should give up trying to be better than we are today.

I’m not naive to the notion that my desire for change might leave a perception of ‘doom and gloom’ about public education — that we aren’t doing anything correct at the moment.

And that’s simply not true.

I am proud of many things that we are currently doing in our schools, primarily due to the efforts from our teachers and administrators — true innovators in our system.

  1. Dear Dave, could you explain to me why we have so many school closure days? I understand why they are in place but I do not find it acceptable that we must save money by closing schools. Surely, there is enough money to keep them open? It seems absurd to close schools in a First World country. I know that you are not the government yet you liaison with the government and converse back and forth. These closures are a troubling trend. The closures also put a huge burden on parents to find alternate care. Is there a movement to change this? I believe that we have more than enough money, the problem lies with priorities. Does the educational system perceive a lack of support from the public or the government or both? And if so, why do you think that is? Thank you for your time, Mikiala
