Seeking advice from families, students and readers (you)

This column appeared in several APG of East Central Minnesota newspapers during December, 2019.

Seeking advice from families, students and readers (you)

The column begins:

Some of the best advice I’ve ever received has come from parents, grandparents, students – and you, readers of this column. Here are a few examples, along with research about how some states have started seeking advice to help improve schools. In that spirit, I hope you’ll take a few minutes over the holidays to give me feedback.

Thinking back, I’ve seen many students benefit when educators listened to and followed advice from families or young people themselves.
