  • 2. What is our mission?
  • 3. Burlington High School Mission Statement
  • 4. Massachusetts Board ofElementary and Secondary Education Mission Statement If we continue to block sites like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter what parts of this need to be modified? The mission of the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education is to strengthen the Commonwealths public education system so that every student is prepared to succeed in postsecondary education, compete in the global economy, and understand the rights and responsibilities of American citizens, and in so doing, to close all proficiency gaps.
  • 5. If we truly believed these mission statements we would... • show students how to edit their privacy settings and use groups in Facebook instead of banning online social networks because they’re ‘dangerous’ and/or ‘frivolous’ • teach students to understand and contribute to the online information commons rather than ‘just saying no’ to Wikipedia • put a robust digital learning device into every student’s hands (or let them bring and use their own) instead of pretending that we live in a pencil notebook paper and ring binder worldClick here for the complete list from Scott McLeod’s Big Think Blog
