Civility
Civility: The Overlooked But Most Important 21st Century Skill?

For more than two decades, forward-leaning educators have focused on a set of skills that for some reason all started with the letter “C”: creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, etc. I want to add another “C” to that list, one, I would argue, that will be more important to the world going forward than all the rest. Civility. If we don’t get this one right, we may not have a framework in which the others will bear fruit.

Are You Ready?
ARE YOU READY?

In our world of uncertainty, especially for superintendents, there is one thing we can rely on: it is not a matter of if a crisis will occur, but when. A recent stint as an interim superintendent served as a reminder that the job has a unique set of challenges and adequate preparation is essential.

Reflecting on My 50th High School Reunion and What I’ve Learned About Life and Life in Education

Five years ago, I attended my 45th high school reunion and reflected in my Blog about how the interpersonal and student-focused dynamics of high schools in the early 1970s were similar and different from the high schools I worked in—at that time—in 2017. Today, I attended my 50th high school reunion, and it is striking what has happened in our country and across the world over the past five years. And while I will detail some of that history in a poem below, let’s recognize that every generation feels that it is unique, and that it contributed something essential to American history and our social fabric.

Keys to Great School Building Designs
Keys to Great School Building Designs

The vast majority of the 250 schools I have visited over the last decade were designed and built with little alignment to what many of use believe is the future of learning. School communities have spent vast treasure building learning spaces that re-enforce an industrial model of education that should have been retired thirty or more years ago.

Football
Winning Is A Process

If you are like me, this is certainly one of your favorite seasons of the year and the particular season to which I refer has little to do with the weather. On the other hand this season has everything to do with school colors, fight songs, tailgating, game-day attire, and how we structure and schedule our Saturday afternoons and evenings.
