Essentials Principles of Successful Public Schools
Democracy: Public school district must be governed by a locally elected, non-partisan school board.
Accountability: Public school district must be held to high standards of performance.
Student-Centered: Every student is entitled to a high quality public education in his or her community.
Community Owned: Public school districts are community school districts — all advances of a public school district and all challenges of a public school district are impacted and owned by its community.
