"We Can Do Better"
On Tuesday, October 26, 2010 I was one of 94 Georgia Citizens who participated in the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education 18th Annual Bus Trip Across Georgia where we learned of some "Best Practices" employed by educators to have their respective schools achieve great results.
The theme of the Bus Trip focused on "flexibility" which was embraced by all the schools we visited. We visited Charter Schools and Traditional Schools and at every stop, all seven of them, we learned that in order for a School to achieve great results; everyone involved must be engaged in Education.
At the conclusion of the Bus Trip we were all given the opportunity to summarize the experiences of the previous three days. My comment was:
Flexibility, Yes!!!; however also using the available resources to provide/achieve the best possible output/results with strong support from the entire community.
In this regard, the entire community includes the business firms, the civic leaders, the parents and yes, the stakeholders or all the citizens of the area.
