Education Quality

 

The Vermont Superintendents Association recently completed a project focused on defining the term "education quality". The effort involved a thorough review of a number of studies conducted in Vermont and elsewhere about how to best define and provide a quality education to all children.  The work involved a distillation of relevant concepts and practices and a graphical presentation of the results. To see the presentation scroll through the slides below. There is more work to do, however, we believe that this is a good starting place for those seeking to bring greater clarity and purpose to the education of children today.

Agenda for a World-Class Education

 

When compared to other states, Vermont’s education system ranks high. In certain areas however, we do not do well enough. For example, while we have among the best high school graduation rates in the country, we know that there are too many students who fall short of their potential or through the cracks because they are not fully engaged in their education or because they don’t receive the supports they need from their schools, their families, or their community. Our Association in collaboration with The Vermont School Boards Association  – as representatives of our public education system -believe that we cannot, in this era of global competition and rapidly changing economic conditions, be content with a good education system. We have much more work to do. Vermont’s children require a world-class education system, a system that responds to every learner’s interests, aptitude and learning style in highly effective ways, a system that ensures all students have the opportunity to meet their full potential. This task is not an easy one. But for Vermont’s children - our future - we cannot be satisfied until we have the very best public education system. To move our system forward, we have a five point agenda:

ASSURING SUCCESS FOR EVERY STUDENT

SUPPORTING A NEW VISION FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING

ENGAGING AND SUPPORTING FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES

DELIVERING AND USING WORLD-CLASS TECHNOLOGY

PROVIDING EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP

 

Some of our proposals will require strategic investments, but most can be accomplished by thinking differently about the way we do our work and changing our practice accordingly.​
