When a parent sends their child to school, they have high expectations. The ability to meet those expectations builds trust — the key to all great learning organizations.
But schools often have a hard time communicating their success. That’s because current test-based accountability systems focus on the past. If we want policy-makers to help change this, we have to provide a workable alternative.
The brainchild of author, speaker and veteran education researcher John Tanner, the bravEd Benefits-Based Accountability Framework™ helps schools, communities and policy-makers shift the narrative from compliance to students and future benefits.
When stakeholders operate from a common vocabulary, focused on the future, they can understand each other, partner to meet and exceed expectations, and pursue the greater good.
