It’s time to rethink our high schools

Cathy Kirkman, a 1980 graduate of Paly, has written a guest opinion, “It’s time to rethink our high schools” for the Palo Alto Weekly, posted on PaloAltoOnline.  It proposes rethinking our schools to make them more humane learning environments, as well as deconstructing and analyzing what we mean by “rigor” in our system. It closes with a call to action to parents to step up and take ownership of the problems and solutions, and references the Savethe2008.com initiative at Gunn as well as this initiative here at MyPausd.org.
