#54 – What Great Schools Do – Create Schools Where Students Want to Be

This episode is part 2 of a series we are running called “What Great Schools Do”. In this series, we will discuss different aspects, the actions that are taken, and the ideas that ensure success in high performing schools.
What is a great school? We are defining it as a school where student outcomes in both learning and life are positively impacted. Where because of the school and the actions that it takes, students make progress.
There is no way that I have captured all the elements that go into making a good school, so please don’t think that if your idea is not in this list, that it is not important. Rather, this is a series that reflects my thinking right now and will certainly evolve over time.

For our second aspect of What Great Schools Do, I focus on creating schools where students want to be. I speak about different aspects of creating schools that are welcoming to students by discussing the following areas: relationships, academic engagement, fun, safety, fairness & equity, and voice.
