Dear Colleagues —
February for me has been a month of travel and time spent with many of you at our annual regional forums. I enjoyed the opportunity to attend each of the six regional forums and was especially pleased that at many of the forums, I was able to schedule listening sessions.
As you probably know, our regional forums attract educators
Several themes emerged from these listening sessions that I think are worth sharing in Connection, because these themes are calls for action that we take very seriously:
I think over the coming months and years, you’ll see that we are taking action to address these issues. And you will also see that we will ask you, our members, to do more and to step forward and join the national conversation about education in this country.
As I said at each forum, I believe that as Americans, we all want to be asked to do more. We want to take on a cause greater than our own interests. Like previous generations, we want to leave a legacy of sacrifice and investment for our children’s future.
We can agree that education is our cause. And I hope we can agree that it’s the best legacy work any of us will ever do.
