On April 8th, AASA released An American Imperative: A New Vision of Public Schools. This set of recommendations from an AASA Learning 2025 National Commission presents a series of connected, essential recommendations which will shape American education. Please join Co-Chairs Dr. Bill Daggett and Dr. Daniel A. Domenech as they share the commission’s call for holistic redesign of the public school system by 2025. Learning 2025: Student-Centered, Equity-Focused Education is an AASA initiative grounded in the foundational work of the AASA Learning 2025 National Commission, comprised of thought leaders in education, business, community, and philanthropy.

The time for action is now. Schools must operate as the heartbeat of the country we want and believe in—a country where freedom, justice, and opportunity are extended to everyone, without question, qualification or exception. The recent pandemic has given us an opportunity to finally reshape schools to meet ALL whole learner needs for maximized achievement. We’re calling on educators to seize this opportunity to realize the vision of holistic school redesign.

Dr. Daggett and Dr. Domenech discuss AASA Learning 2025 National Commission’s core components and corresponding essential areas of systemic school redesign. As leaders, teachers, and students work to realize this vision, all must play an active role in redesigning systems, reengineering instruction, and co-authoring the learning journey.

This recorded presentation will be of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.

 

Bill DaggettAbout the Presenters

Bill Daggett, Ed.D. is the founder of both the Successful Practices Network and the International Center for Leadership in Education. He is recognized worldwide for his proven ability to move preK-12 education systems towards more rigorous and relevant skills and knowledge for all students. For 30 years, he has crisscrossed our nation, as well as the industrialized world, to lead school reform efforts to effectively prepare students for their future.

While an avid supporter of public education, he also challenges all of us to be more focused on our children’s future than on maintaining the schools of our youth. His insights and leadership have caused nearly every major education association in the country, hundreds of school districts, numerous political and business leaders, publishers, and others to seek out his advice and guidance.

Dr. Daggett began his career as a teacher, local administrator, and then director with the New York State Education Department. He spends much of his time providing leadership and guidance to the National Dropout Prevention Center and the Career and Technical Education Technical Assistance Center, which are part of the Successful Practices Network.

He is the creator of the Rigor/Relevance Framework which has recently become the cornerstone of much of the nation’s school reform efforts. He is also the author of numerous books about learning and education, textbooks, research reports, and journal articles.

Dr. Daggett has been recognized as a distinguished alumnus by both Temple University and the State University at Albany.

Dr. Daggett has a special commitment to individuals with disabilities. He and his wife, Bonnie, volunteer their time and lend their support to Wildwood Programs in upstate New York.
