Kathryn, an experienced and successful charter school principal, sent me this comment after reading an earlier blog.
"Incremental degradation--if we compromise at work or at home; if we lower the standard about how we talk, what we talk about, and most important, what degree of authenticity we bring to our (educational) conversations--it's a slow and deadly slide. You are required to be responsive to your world." Fierce Conversations by S. Scott.
Passionate engagement by all players, coupled with a strong and clear vision, is something charter schools share.
