5 REASONS WHY THE FUTURE OF K-12 EDUCATION IS BRIGHT

When I was a principal, I asked my students at the beginning of the year, “Raise your hand if you want to be successful.”  Not surprisingly, every student responds by raising his or her hand.  Not only do they raise their hands, but they do so with confidence and pride, with a fearlessness and sense of purpose. This valuable lesson and sense of optimism gives me a tremendous amount of hope for the future.

With concepts like Virtual and Augmented Reality, Predictive Analytics, Design-Thinking and other forms of innovative practices, it is hard not to get excited about our current world in education. Some are afraid of the direction in which education is headed, but I am confident in the future of K-12 education.  So, how can we continue to make the future bright?

We can…

1. Foster and encourage students and teachers to be curious and creative.
