Beyond the staff Room – a rebrand (let’s keep talking)

I have rebranded. If you have been listening to my podcast over the last year, you have known it as "Eduthoughts."  this is a word I made up, and it was ok, but i was never in love with it.  i simply didn't have an idea i thought I could replace it with.   over some time and consultation with many...

A Seat at the Table

How many schools have created opportunities for parents and guardians to learn about an issue and “engage meaningfully and concretely in dialogue…?” How many have viewed parents as partners in the education of their students?
