how to ensure a guaranteed and viable curriculum insist on teacher quality insist that the `brutal learning facts are front and center and to imbed them in our practice organize your school around learning particularly how to face the decision conundrum why so few good ones get made and what we can do and create a culture of accountability come prepared with a willingness to challenge the status quo and hone for yourself a concrete set of practices to stop doing because they are too low leverage start doing because of their known effect on learning and possibly some to continue doing
