Quote of the day

"All of the things we are doing with our educational system regarding accountability in the US are great. We have put metrics, testing, and assessment systems and structures in place that are making a difference. But, while these things are making a difference, I do not think they go far enough. In a way these things are more inspection oriented versus a means for changing the culture of our educational system. We need to start teaching principles and behaviors for how our administrators, teachers, support staffs, and students can truly act accountably in all that they do. Instilling these key principles and behaviors will change the culture of our educational system and lead to sustainable advantage."
