Just Fact #writeeveryday

My Post (2) (4)

I just had a conversation with a colleague who reminded me of the importance of fact and how important it can be in looking at change and change systems.  A lot of work in schools becomes stuck in opinion and conjecture, versus looking at data and depersonalizing conversations so that real progress can be made.  I’m not pretending that this is easy work, cause it isn’t, not at all.  Having said that I truly believe that we need to comfortable asking questions about who we are, what’s our data telling us, and let’s take control of asking the write questions of our data.  Relying on summative standardized assessment results isn’t going to guide us in how our students feel at school, or where we are seizing student voice.  By asking questions about who we are, looking for fact versus theory, could move the needle in the right direction.
