I like to say — why would I make the second best decision when I can make the best decision. Thank you, Christine!
Thank you Christine, I will use that when I come to US as a fellow Fulbrighter in August.
No one could have said it better! The concepts of a student-centered focus which includes the arts and physical activity make sense. Also, the idea of having standards, but, at the same time allowing individual creativity for implementations seems like a win-win situation. In a former day, there were neighborhood schools. These spurred a lot of interest and involvement on all levels. What would be wrong with that! Keep up the good work, Christine.
Fantastic job, Christine. Linda, Harry, Jeanne and I sat captivated throughout.
oh man! You guys are all hanging out?!? I’m jealous!!!
Thanks for watching it though! 🙂
Yep, over pasta & vino. I look forward to talking about all you have learned and the new knowledge you have been synthesizing. It seems there is much to explore regarding size and homogeneity and where these differences could and should be transcended. See you soon.
