Margot attended the Rural Education Summit (hosted by SCORE), recently and is sharing what she gleaned:
In the end, the most important thing I learned from the summit was that employers and educators must listen to each other to begin a collaborative effort that addresses the challenges that are before us. Federal standards, while important and necessary, must not stand in the way of preparing students for their futures. And in education, as in so many other areas, we are going to need to think regionally, ignoring the arbitrary boundaries of cities and counties, in order to have the resources necessary to provide our children with the education they deserve.
…Certainly a collaborative effort for Robertson County to consider.
