teach all our students to become the best they can be with the goal of
developing lifelong learners who have the skills to compete and function
as valuable contributing members of our society. All students can learn
and progress to the next level. The challenge is struggling to
achieve this with factors that are out of our control. Today, educators
need staff development to maximize student achievement despite those
factors for which we have little influence.
