Dear Former Student

Dear Former Student,

You concluded with “Students come first , thought thats what schools were all about”. I might suggest you use “learners” in place of “students”, but overall, I could not agree more. Please ask your friends (both former and current students) to repeat this message until decision makers finally understand what you truly mean by this statement. I also wonder, what would happen if students (learners) were the decision makers?

 

I think Nicole Lafond also interviewed this student:

“I thought that was the schools’ goals, to have kids come first.”

 

So tell us, students, what is the purpose of school? What should school do?
