Smitty commented on Heart Centered 21st Century Learning

As a State Legislator from the Berkshires in Massachusetts I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Yvette Jackson and my life long friend Dr. Michele Rivers Murphy for over a year now regarding this very topic. They have become great mentors to me as I push an historic initiative called "Shared Services" which will bring together schools and communities to share best practices in order to enhance and streamline services, provide greater efficiencies while savings taxpayer dollars. Dr's Rivers Murphy and Jackson have been at the forefront of this and we are already experiencing wonderful results. As populations decline and the poverty rate increases these types of ideas will allow ALL students, regardless of economic status, equal access to education which is the baseline for future prosperity.  When leaders lead, not only for today, but for the next generation great things can happen.
