Lawrence believes that collaborative ventures between schools, families, the business and faith-based communities must be promoted to build capacity in schools during times when resources are dwindling and demands are escalating. He feels that all children can and must learn and achieve at high levels. Teachers must demonstrate the ability and the desire to educate each child at a high level, but the district has an obligation to quantify and specify the nature of work teachers are to do. When everyone works together, we will better enable students to achieve more and at a faster pace.
