Candid Feedback

Cedar/Central friends, CCSD friends, Athens and Georgia public education friends:
This sounds like a promising approach in helping diverse and effective schools thrive– a story from, of all places, Iowa:

” ‘Unless we get feedback from diverse perspectives, we can only operate from what we know—and what we know is limited because it’s just from one person’s perspective,’ said Mindy Euken, the 9th grade school improvement coach who is working with Nicole Ellis, the school’s equity coach, on broadening student voice.”
Not to be unduly smart-assed about it, but I bet the students’ consulting fees are very reasonable too– and that they dish out real advice from their lived experience, in school and out, etc etc.
So many learnings in this article– seems worth a try to me.
