On August 14, 2014, I had the opportunity to attend Cincinnati Public School’s State of the School Event. CPS laid out a bold plan, My Tommorow*ed, that envisions, within six years, 100% of all seventh graders will graduate prepared to actively pursue their chosen path. My Tomorrow reimagines schools in a way that they believe will fuel an enhanced student experience by combining increased rigor, the latest technology and supportive adult relationships. The aim is to do the best job possible preparing our students for success in the real world.

I could not have drawn the conclusions any better!
Let’s put critical and creative thinking back into our schools!
Let’s give our teachers the time and resources to truly treat students as individuals, not merely a test score!
