Happy 100 Days: 73

Today, Fairfax County Public Schools (with a little help from a corporate sponsor) hosted an Education Summit for members of the community. The keynote speaker was Dr. Ronald Ferguson, an economist and educational policy scholar from Harvard. He works on issues of equity and achievement in schools, and has come to understand the important role parenting, particularly early parenting, plays in school success.
 
His most recent book is Toward Excellence with Equity: An Emerging Vision for Closing the Achievement Gap. Society as a whole rises or falls on the opportunities for our kids, whether we have kids or not. Wherever we are in our community or in the arc of our lives, all of us a part to play in shaping the future for our kids.
 
Check him out. Get inspired. Get to work!
