When policymakers discuss education reform the conversation often emphasizes the attempt to reduce failure rates project management team. While this goal is admirable in theory – after all, the public has an interest in reducing poor academic performance – it overlooks a far more impactful opportunity: the ability to enable children to reach their full intellectual potential.
This subtle shift in language, from No Child Left Behind to No Child Held Back, represents a far more powerful result in practice. Meaning: when we make excellence a top priority – for students and teachers alike – we transform the way schools operate, along with the way a community partners with area teachers and administrators.
These points do not mean challenges will not arise, or that there is one guaranteed solution for the obstacles that confront us. But we clearly have a chance – a moment we must seize – to make education reform our legacy. This quest is a noble endeavor, one we can all join.
