When was the last time you were invited to help change the world?

Throughout my life as an educator, I have worked with scores of talented, passionate people like you who share the belief that education is that one true thing we can count on for a better future.

The span of my career has proved what’s possible … and what’s needed. My experiences teaching and reaching children, in and out of the classroom and all over the world, have taught me that the work of improving and reshaping education must never cease.

Now, more than ever, education needs an overhaul. Rather than build new structures on a weak foundation of old ideas, we need to rebuild from the ground up. Only innovative minds, passionate hearts and ready hands can help a faltering school achieve merit and distinction. It is the best way—maybe the only way—to eliminate the achievement gap that is eroding the effectiveness in classrooms, schools, districts and states all across America.

The bottom line: we have a duty to ensure all students receive the finest education possible. There is no other way to adequately prepare them for success as global citizens. Short of that goal, we are short-changing our children.

In this blog, we’ll tap into thought leadership from initiators at the front lines of education reform. People who not only hunger for change, but who also have the drive and influence to open doors to a quality education for every child.

You’ll also hear my point of view, unfiltered—and you’ll profit from my experience. I’ll share innovative ideas that do transform schools. I’ve give you my take on what needs fixing. When we all start sharing ideas, innovation, intellect and passion, we will create the alchemy needed to change failing schools into high-performing centers of authentic learning.

The world can’t wait any longer for all children, often overlooked by standard education, to ramp up for the future they are about to inherit. Together let’s build a community of collaborators who won’t stop until the job is done. And this job will never be done.

Let’s do this. Let’s start now.

Ever forward,
