While I may not agree with Horace Mann’s approach to education reform, I could not agree more with his words above. Educating our children is essential to ensuring the future prosperity of the county, and – hopefully – the prosperous futures of the students themselves. Just providing an education is not enough; we must be able to provide quality education that will give kids the skills they need to be successful.
In writing this blog, I hope to have even the slightest impact on the fight to reform K-12 education in America. The Education Reform Bulletin will offer news updates and opinions on all things related to public education, both in Colorado (where I live) and around the country.
