Excerpt from Show

Bruce Penniman, of the Western Massachusetts Writing Project, on the importance of developing new ideas that come from teacher-leaders:

Sometimes at moments of crisis—funding crises or other kinds of leadership crises—have proven to be generative times for refocusing on the mission of the site, clarifying the mission of the site in some cases, and then thinking about where should we best put our energy and resources that we have. It’s always been teams of teachers that have made those crucial decisions.”
