  1. Even worse is the attitude within an organization that things are “good enough”. That phrase carries the implicit meaning that we don’t have to try to improve things anymore.

    Not that this happens in the district I work for, of course. 🙂

  2. Sometimes it takes stepping outside of our field to get the perspectives needed for change to occur. There are many good schools, and even more good teachers and leaders, yet our educational systems are not great. Students have the intellectual and internal potential to be GREAT-it is up to us to create the environment for this to happen. These are powerful resources that can help us look to how that can be accomplished. Thanks for sharing!
