  • Such great points about approaching school improvement in a different manner by taking advantage of the strengths of a school.

    Thank you for your comment. I think you are right it is a different approach, which is interesting. Especially since some of the best classrooms (or learning spaces) are those that are led by individuals that expect to find strengths in all students and then leverage those strengths to bridge gaps. This approach to school improvement looks to grow schools in the same way…which certainly helps teams in “failing forward” and therefore learning fast to get better. Thank you again for the comment.
    take care,
