Leading High-Performing School Districts | Canadian Education Association (CEA)

Leading High-Performing School Districts | Canadian Education Association (CEA) | New learning | Scoop.it
School districts are largely invisible and of little interest to the public, except when conflicts among trustees, or between trustees and community groups, generate media attention. School closings, student busing policies and teacher professional development days are examples of issues that predictably attract such attention.
Paul's insight:

Really interesting characteristics on what needs to be seen in strong districts.

What Defines a Good School? | New learning | Scoop.it
To create school environments that reflect our humanity, the words we use matter, writes Superintendent David Gamberg.
Paul's insight:

Among the many other more important ways to engage the hearts and minds of our youngest students, we must promote the childhood experience in all its wonder.
