What does recent a school survey reveal about ‘thou shall not snitch’ culture? Can schools take advantage of real life situations to create a culture of preparedness, safety and prevention?
The responses to this survey at H.D. Woodson High School reveal opportunities for schools to open the lines of communication, but only if school leaders understand how to relate to students and how to build trust with students.
Lessons Learned: Status quo responses to a survey, status quo comments from adults and status quo news articles validate how status quo approaches are not going to solve the problems and new challenges schools and communities face in the real and changing world we all live in. A huge opportunity exists for visionary school leaders to make a difference by asking better questions that help to connect the dots and strengthen our weakest links.
