Illinois Vision 20/20 is Launched
Education is an investment in our children’s future, our state’s future, and our nation’s future. It is our responsibility as educators to reflect upon the current state of education in Illinois and take action to create an education system that meets the needs of all students.
Many times statewide organizations are better known for what they oppose rather than those things for which they stand. In November 2012, the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA) initiated a visioning process in partnership with the Illinois Principals Association (IPA), the Illinois Association of School Business Officials (IASBO), the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), the Superintendents’ Commission for the Study of Demographics and Diversity (SCSDD), and the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools (IARSS) to unite the education community and to develop a long-range blueprint for improving public education in Illinois. Together we stand for excellence in education for all Illinois children.
Based on the pillars of 1) highly effective educators, 2) 21st Century learning, 3) shared accountability, and 4) equitable and adequate funding, Illinois Vision 20/20 provides the framework for making significant, positive change for public education in Illinois. Learn more about this exciting initiative HERE. Here's a video that provides a quick overview.
Our children's futures depend on it!
