|Education Research||What's Your Hedgehog? From Good-to-Great: A collaborative framework to identify school strengths||Whether an independent, public or charter school, it is important that schools articulate their strengths. Knowing their strengths enables schools to develop a unifying conceptual framework, or “Hedgehog,” as developed by Jim Collins. This presentation examines Honolulu Waldorf School’s process of identifying their “Hedgehog.” We will share our process of conducting stakeholder focus group interviews, applying a collaborative facilitation framework, to help understand characteristics of the school’s “Hedgehog.” What emerged was an understanding of the school’s best practices that set it apart from other independent schools, which will aid in future school strategic planning. This process is applicable all schools.||Torry||Montes||Mid-Pacific|
|Education Research||It’s time for school to “lawyer up”||This presentation will profile the attributes of a legal education as a model for competency-based education in secondary schools. |
Contrary to popular belief and false narratives (and many, many punch lines), society still values the legal profession and a legal education. Attorneys have infiltrated a wide range of industries including education, as evidence of the continued value of a legal education. Because lawyers serve individuals in their time of need and lend a voice to others, including those marginalized in society, the lawyer’s compentancies and skills remain relevant and closely connected to our changing world.
These competentcies and skills in legal education can serve as a model in secondary ed.
