Where does education happen? In classrooms. Teachers can provide the ultimate reform of education and teachers can be the ultimate reformers of education. Still, teachers cannot create all of the needed improvements in education alone. Input from, involvement from, ideas from, and participation from many other people can combine with what only teachers know about education to create the educational improvements which are sought year after year. School administrators, parents, guardians, school board members, community members, community organizations, politicians and other people can join in a grass-roots effort which agrees on a shared purpose for schools and on a way to improve schools so the purpose of a school – to cause learning – is realized.
