Below is the presentation I made last night to the board of trustees here at St. Gregory, seeking to articulate the defining and distinctive qualities of the “new model” school and the model that this blog is calling for (hence, the 21k12 school).   It is framed by defining the twelve aspects of schooling to be treated “seriously,” not just paid lip service to.    Apologies– it is still in a roughly hewn format, and needs further fine tuning and elaboration, but in the spirit of transparency, I want to get up for all to see what the board “got” to see last night.  (In future weeks, I will likely re-post this, in an amended, and beautified, version.)
