ConclusionFinal summary in A Blueprint For Great Schools report from the Transition Advisory Team dated August 9, 2011.
Clearly, there is much work to do to rebuild the system of public education in California. But we are inspired by the commitment of educators, parents, and children in schools throughout the state, and we are encouraged by the outpouring of energy, good will, and excellent ideas from stakeholders within and outside of the education system. It is said that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. If that step is taken, and we follow it with steady movement in a clear and purposeful direction, A Blueprint for Great Schools can create the 21st Century learning system for Californians that all of us want, and our children deserve.
