High school reform begins with a desire by some — and at least a willingness of others to be led — to change what currently exists. The leaders in our most successful high schools, both administration and staff, embrace change as exciting and challenging rather than intimidating and threatening. These educators seem to understand that what exists in schools today needs to be updated to keep pace with society. They recognize that students and adults must continually learn new things and that some of the skills we teach and use today will soon be as outdated as the skills needed to operate a typewriter or a slide rule. Technological change is inevitable, and they are ready to deal with it.
