Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 23, 8:45 PM

I think there is more give and take, but what I agree is that if local innovation is not supported at the jurisdiction level forget it. What is often desired by managers is innovation that fits easily from place to place i.e. systems like vs. considering what people at the local level want and need.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, April 23, 9:15 PM

There is a correlation to the amount of change and innovation schools do  and the freedom that people within the schools have to change and be innovative. Being innovative isn't easy, it means taking risks and trying new things - putting oneself out there. Without a culture that supports such initiatives, schools will continue to be places where innovation happens in pockets, not throughout the system.
