There’s a real focus in this district to mold a child to be successful in whichever way they need to be. It’s not just an academic focus. It’s about the whole child. If you look at what we did 30 years ago when I first started, it’s such a different message now. We value language, diversity and technology. We want students to have all those skills. If your child is not academically inclined, we want them to have vocational opportunities. The entire organization talks about that. Our goals are the same. Every school, I can say, is really great. We have the perspectives out there about which schools are good and which are not, but if you walk into a school, you’re going to find great things.
