Hypothetically, if you had an opportunity to meet over coffee with the person who was going to be your state’s highest ranking education official for the next four years, what would you say?
Would you talk about laptops for students and teachers, the importance of having access to digital curriculum which facilitates differentiated instruction and learning, the need to address special needs children in a vision for charter schools, or something else? Remember, you just have sixty minutes, and you can’t talk about too many things. You need to be focused. You need to speak about important issues, but not in abstract terms: This is an opportunity to have a dialog about educational policy.
What should have top priority in your meeting agenda, assuming you get to set at least part of that agenda?
Hypothetically speaking, of course.
