STEM education is being given a great deal of attention today because the business mind knows that in order to compete we must have creative thinkers and those creative thinkers must know how to productively articulate their thoughts.
Everyone engaged in the movement to create a better system of education knows that this thing called “education” is a very complex organism whose influences reach into every facet of the entire social diaspora. The more properly educated one is, the more likely it is one will easily migrate across social strata becoming more intelligent as learning continues.
The organization(ism) education is so large that the only way it can be changed is if each of us take responsibility for changing a small part of it. Each group, like Location 19, can follow and report through their web page, issues of importance to their group (e.g. the closing of School #16). Each group could have their individual web page with the information for which they are taking responsibility along with upcoming issues to be addressed by the group noted. Should anyone want to take on the task, there could be one master web page that encompasses the sites of all the groups wishing to be listed. It should be a part of the District Web Page. A national group list-serve could be made available.
As a coalition of stakeholders in the movement to reform education so that it successfully educates every child to their inherent potential we must begin to use the technology we have at our disposal to keep each other informed and to, when necessary, support each other in the cause of our children.
We could learn how to incorporate the science of technology and the engineering of math into a network of intellectual property that cannot be dazzled by brilliance or baffled by anything. Knowing what our educational leaders are deciding is paramount to holding them accountable for the decisions they make.
In order to effect change we must be more committed than our opponents to effecting change.
