THE FUTURE IS HERE AND OUR KIDS NEED TO BE READY FOR IT... VOLUME 2
Welcome to 24/7 Education Group monthly newsletter. The purpose of this newsletter is to provide you with information about our programs, campaigns, and accomplishments from the previous month.
The big question that was asked of the executive team last month was, “what are we creating?” All of the answers were similar but had some subtle differences. For our organization to meet its maximum potential, we all must be in the same boat, rowing in the same direction, and speaking the same language. So I am going to answer that question and explain our vision.
What are we creating: THE SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE
OUR VISION: THE SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE
Our school of the future will be made up of:

Learn by Doing
