Whole system change can be done in a short, reasonable amount of time, and it can have a profound impact. However, for this to happen there are some specific actions that must take place.
These essential aspects to whole system change include:
- A commitment to the moral imperative
- A small number of ambitious goals
- The building of capacity
- Access to data
- Building of leadership on all levels (stop leaving teachers out of the process)
- The mobilization of everyone to focus on the collaborative focus so that the system can raise the bar and close the achievement gap
