Tactical Components – (the how)
Since we live in an age of innovation, a practical education must prepare a person for work that does not yet exist and cannot be clearly defined.
- Peter Drucker
It is no longer enough to simply read and write. Students must also become literate in the understanding of visual images. Our children must learn how to spot a serotype, isolate a social cliché, distinguish facts from propaganda, analysis from banter, and important news from coverage.
- Ernest Boyer, past president, Carnegie Foundation
In times of change learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
Do not train children to learn by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.
Above all, we are coming to understand that the arts incarnate the creativity of a free people.
- John Kennedy
Give pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the dong is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.
Providing a well rounded education
The power to question is the basis for all human progress.
Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.
-John F. Kennedy
Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.
- Peter Drucker
Engaging, high quality instruction that will lead to maximizing student achievement
What’s right with America is that although we have a mess of problems, we have great capacity – intellect and resources - to do some thing about them.
Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. The act that endows with a new capacity to create wealth.
Effectively utilizing and expanding our existing and future resources
Combining from various sources:
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
- Barack Obama
