A great piece by friend and former colleague Kyle Redford… a must read for teachers!


I love this because it is honest and accurate and a terrific message for teachers to share with students. It is also a great message for students to absorb and for parents to reinforce.  In the best school settings, students learn “agency.” They learn to advocate for themselves and make sure they speak up when they need help. They are striving to be in the driver’s seat of their own education, even if it takes them a while to get there.

Thanks, Kyle!
