Note that when combined, our efforts are designed to help people in public schools communicate a full range of key information --
a) the whole child’s progress and educational experience, rapidly;
b) knowledge, information, and resources needed to support young people’s full development
– to a full range of key participants in a child’s life.
Circulation of information needs to be multidirectional: getting information from a parent on a child’s situation is as important as getting information to her.
We contend that the overall direction of needed improvements to the “communication infrastructure” of public education might follow these two principles:
-Rather than only communicate about some aspects of young people’s development, we need to communicate about all necessary aspects; -Rather than only communicate with some people about the acts necessary to support a young person, we need to communicate with all necessary partners.
