An American Imperative: A New Vision of Public Schools
April 08, 2021
AASA Learning 2025: Student-Centered, Equity-Focused, Future-Driven Education is a movement that calls for holistic redesign of the public school system by 2025.
The initiative is grounded in the foundational work of the AASA Learning 2025 National Commission, comprised of thought leaders in education, business, community and philanthropy.
What makes this report stand out is its call to action comprised of recommendations, coupled with specific action steps.
Everyone associated with a school district must take bold steps to work together as systems on behalf of the well-being, self-sufficiency and success of our students. Daniel A. Domenech, AASA Executive Director
The report affirms that leaders, teachers and learners play a role in redesigning systems, reengineering instruction and co-authoring the learning journey.
Further, core component areas are essential and must be present to address any school system and community.
These core areas include:
- Social, Emotional and Cognitive Growth
The multi-year transition plan provides guardrails for change and simultaneous calls for the empowerment of districts and schools to enact change.
