Our Plan for Winston Salem Forsyth County Schools
The education crisis in America has been overlooked and ignored for far too long. During the 2016 election, only 4% of Americans felt that education was a top concern. Recognizing that young people are the future of our country should be priority and an initiative we all bare as a responsibility.
Remaking schools in ways that engage students in the learning process that leads then to add a purpose to their work will help satisfy and retain quality teachers and prepare students to thrive in the workplace and their communities.
Inspiring the next generation of innovators will require embracing new technologies and openness to change in the way we educate our children. To thrive in the 21st century, we cannot continue to operate under the theory that becoming “educated” requires kids to show up at a particular place to sit in a particular order with other kids their same age and the same neighborhood to go through a particular curriculum at a particular pace and be assessed in the same way as everyone else in the room.
