Learning for all doesn't mean every student masters every target; it means every student masters the essential targets. I'm not sure if we have more statement than mission or more mission than statement at UE - but I think we have been learning for all. I like thinking about what do you want school to provide your child. I want parents in Vestal lying about where they live so their kids can come to UE! It seems to be coming back to starting with what is essential, which is more important than ever now.
I attended a 2-day training a couple of years ago with Tom, I was a teacher leader at the time. Now that I have my own school and am looking at how to move forward, it is wonderful to dive back into this literature! Thank you for your energy!
