Transcript of Thinking Outside the Box to Close the Achievement Gap

What is a student? What makes an effective school district? A belief that they can teach all students

A student is a human being who brings us his or her desire to learn.

It is our job to handle each student in a manner, which is beneficial to the student and ourselves.
