“[I love] the openness and feeling that it was a safe environment to share struggles and concerns.”
“[I learned that establishing a] school culture of respect and collaboration is the essential beginning for establishing deeper learning practices. Commitment to whole child learning is primary. There are a variety of educational pathways we must prepare students to be equipped to choose.“
Since 2014, the STC Forum has also included the Robert F. Kennedy Urban Education Awards ceremony. It is a highlight of our Forum each year, as we recognize and celebrate amazing school leader, teacher and student candidates for their inspiring stories of change.
