Alan and I were recently invited to the first of many listening events sponsored by Governor Raimondo as she travels around the state meeting with students, parents and other community members regarding the hiring of the next education commissioner for the State of RI. "We have a big decision to make," Raimondo told nearly two dozen educators. "I need you to be part of the process so we can get it right. We have to find a leader to take our system to the next level."
It is very important that we hear from all stakeholders in the community regarding this important transition. #EdChatRI is the state’s leading educational discussion forum on Twitter. It was also clear to see the power of our PLN, as many of the representatives at the inaugural commissioner search meeting were active participants in our weekly #EdChatRI chat. This Sunday, March 1, #EdChatRI will be asking for your thoughts on this important transition. The archive of the Twitter chat will then be shared with the Governor.
