A must watch video from the Annenberg Institute for School Reform:
Reform has almost become a dirty word for people who believe in a strong public school system, but it shouldn't be that way. Efforts to improve public education should come from the kind of community collaboration described in this video: organized parents and teachers working on first identifying needs and then working together with elected officials to make needed changes.
This kind of collaborative reform stands in contrast with top-down, corporate driven reforms that emphasize confrontation and cutthroat competition. As a grassroots organization driven by parents and teachers, Marions United naturally believes in community collaboration as the key to improving public schools.
