We need your stories if you have successfully transformed any part of this monstrous educational system…
Ed Matadores: Revolutionizing Educational Systems will be a series of narratives written by educational leaders who have successfully transformed any part of the enormous educational system to create successful outcomes for students. This collection of success stories will lead to strategic ways to inform lawmakers and departments of education to help dismantle ineffective structures and replace them with systems that support the innovation that is necessary to support the types of learning that will support our upcoming global citizens in our schools. This first book will lead to a series of other books with each chapter being a new theme in the series.
Principals and Vice-Principals in schools across the country are leading the way in finding innovative ways to meet the needs of their students while breaking the boundaries the system has put into place. Those boundaries must be broken and their stories must be told. This is where transformation takes place and is the place where we must be looking to understand the changes that need to take place systematically.
Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, and Directors at the district level of schools have to pave the way for schools to have the safety to break the systemic boundaries that are not helping students. These stories are critical to transforming our educational system because they tell us where the unnecessary constraints are that must be let go of at a higher level.
Consultants, Educational Organizations, and other Educational Leaders are also making a difference in education in various ways as well. Some are community based organizations, some are consultants supporting schools and districts, and others may be helping to change legislation or regulations to allow further innovation to take place to meet the needs of more students. All of these stories are part of the equation to making lasting change to the enormous educational system.
Our needs in a globalized society have changed dramatically, not just in the last century but even more so in the last decade. Schools have not kept up nor have they even had a chance to because of the endless unfunded mandates imposed by lawmakers who know nothing about teaching and learning. In addition, short sighted regulations by departments of education keep us stuck to old Carnegie units and other outdated practices that suppress true innovation and promote tweaking old models and just so we can rename them as something new.
