Why Do You Ask?

From asking questions that require an answer To asking questions that require a conversation.

Sheryl asked a great question on Twitter this evening. I truly hope her conversation goes well tomorrow. Here was her question and purpose for asking Twitterers.

Speaking to 80 superintendents tomorrow that want to know-- what should a 21st C edc leader know and be able to do to lead effectively today.

What would you tell them? Resources? Related posts? What is important for today's superintendent to know? Want to show Twitter grp think

There are so many things that came to mind, but I had to - I just had to - bring something up. It is an opportunity to demonstrate how void NCLB is. Really. If all our kids need to really know is how to read and do math, then why isn't that enough for today's adults? We brainwash our kids into believing that reading and math are the end-all, be-all to a successful life. If we really believed this, then it would be good enough for us too, right? As a matter of fact, if we say we want better for our kids than we do for ourselves, the reading and math is MORE than we need.

It just isn't logical. Sheryl, give the Superintendents everything you've got. You can speak from your overflow of knowledge and practice, and give them more than they can handle. All the best.
