Caterpillar to Butterfly

Caterpillar to butterfly logo

In nature, the quintessential example of transformation is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar chrysalis into a butterfly. A butterfly is not a caterpillar with wings strapped on its back--it is a substantially and essentially different life form.

In much the same way, school systems for the Information-age must emerge from their current form to become substantially and essentially different from what they are now. Small, piecemeal changes to today's school systems will not create transformed school systems.

A transformed school system is not one with piecemeal changes strapped on its back; it is a totally new "life form." And so it is that our logo serves as a metaphor for transforming American school systems.
