Learning is personal.
Learning has always been personal.
(Our education system was built for institutional efficiency.)
But people are working to change that.
A better future for learners begins

to make education more personal.
We are educators, families, citizens, leaders and learners committed to making education more personal for ourselves and others.
We believe that education is everybody’s business. This is how communities invest in the future, and we all have a difference to make.
a personal approach to educating our students
Every person has different interests and abilities. With the system we have today, it can be difficult to serve each person differently. But education works best when we make it personal.
a personal approach to transforming our system
Trying to force people to comply often fails because people don’t truly own the change. Education is for people, by people, and people change education when people make it personal.
New school means making it personal.
Find your passion. Take action from where you are. Try new ideas. Have a vision and share it. Adopt a forward-looking, optimistic point of view. Be open to change. Push yourself.
Nurture trusting relationships. Give individual attention. Flex yourself and the system to meet the needs of people. Be a servant leader. Offer encouragement. Be kind and caring.
Work together, not in isolation. Include all perspectives. Listen for and share the kind truth. Tap the power of everyone. Seek the common good. Invest in shared resources.
The new school community relies on people like you sharing their first-hand experience about what works. Please help us build a database of real world examples!
