Understanding the Process

January 11, 2012

I think almost all of us agree that each and every change is difficult, both individual change and organizational change.  In education, this is particularly true. Noted author Robert Marzano stated,

One of the constants within k-12 education is that someone is always trying to change it – some one is always proposing a new program or practice…. Some of the more visible programs that have not endured are programmed instruction, open education, the Platoon System and flexible scheduling.

It feels like this has never been more true…. The three R’s are now –  reforms, re-invention and re-imagining.  However, it is important to note the keys to being successful in this environment remain largely the same.  We must keep the lines of communication open and acknowledge the questions (and fears) that are created as we manage the process.
