THE Big, Hairy Question For Schools and School Leaders

I discovered Grant Lichtman’s blog post and could not resist posting it to principalaim. According to Grant, the question that educators should be asking themselves is “what is the business of schools”?

Like Grant, I acknowledge that many school officials bristle when anyone equates “business” with schools. However, I believe we have to get past our fears of becoming businesses so that we can take care of the business of educating millions of school age children. No matter how we look at it, we must figure out the business of school and (more importantly) of education for the sake of all children. tlb
