Have Schools Forgotten Their Why?

whychange
After having read chapter 1 of The Innovator’s Mindset, the big question that stood out to me was, “Have schools forgotten their why?” I thought this was the perfect opportunity to take a few steps back and pull out my educational philosophy and leadership beliefs, to see if those still align with what I truly believe school should be for students today. I would love to hear what others in our district think about my beliefs in education and leadership, as I’m sure I will be challenged to think differently and could stand to learn a great deal from them.

I feel that if we don’t go back to the basics of our beliefs, and particularly, the purpose of school, then moving beyond that towards innovative solutions could be very challenging.
