Pre-Conference Thoughts February 21, 2011

My hopes, as I prepare to leave my school for three days next week, are:
1. to hear and share about the ways that independent schools have been successful in advancing our public purpose
2. to engage in honest dialog about the ways that independent schools must change in order to effectively do this work

I am hoping to dig deeply with other school leaders and challenge each other to resist the complacency that can grow out of self-satisfaction. I hope we ask each other some hard questions about who we are, who we serve best and if we are willing to seize this monumental opportunity to advance our public purpose.

What a privilege to have this time together! I hope we use it well.
