For State and Federal Legislators

Your concerns about transformational change:


What you can do in FutureMinds:

  • Listen to your State Superintendent of Schools and State Department of Education about what school districts want and need.
  • Support school district transformation by providing necessary resources; find money in the budget without permanently raising taxes.
  • Hold the State Department of Education accountable for improvement in school districts.
  • Resist the temptation to micro-manage or legislate change.
  • Remember that a school district is a special interest group; one size does not fit all; each school district is unique--what works for one district may not be what works for another.
  • Taxpayers and voters will benefit from improved schools.  Keep reminding them.
