Describe the K-12 school of your dreams. How would you build it? Imagine your children and grandchildren attending this school.
"Perhaps you might want to start a separate conversation regarding what an ideal educational system might look like so I and others could contribute our thoughts under that topic? But why limit it to K-8? Why not K-12 while we're at it?"

Closing Statement from Rodrigo P. Feliciano
Our definition of a dream school is as unique as each one of us. Leaders alone cannot build a dream school. School administrators and teachers alone cannot build a dream school. Parents alone cannot build a dream school. Students alone cannot build a dream school. Every member of the community making a positive contribution may build a good school.
What will happen if a good student with supportive parents attends a good school? What will happen if an unmotivated student attends a good school? What will happen if an unmotivated student with uninvolved parents attends a bad school?
Perhaps a dream school is just that, a dream. History shows that there are always individuals who are willing to work tirelessly to achieve their dreams and contribute for the common good, whether they attended a good school or a bad school or, whether they graduated from college or not.
