8 Things Every Good School Must Have
Quick gut check: Does your child attend a good school? As a mom and an educator, Shawnta Barnes has thought a lot about it. Here are her 8 things every good school must have. 1. Teachers believe all students can learn. 2. All students are learning, even those who are racially, ethnically, linguistically or economically different. 3. Teachers know their content well. 4. The school communicates with parents clearly and frequently about important issues and asks for input before making decisions. 5. The principal supports teachers and builds teacher leaders. 6. The school is safe from violence. 7. The school has appropriate, up-to-date resources. 8. The teachers and staff are not racists, bullies, pedophiles or any danger to the school community.
