I'm delighted I can follow up yesterday's concerns about the New Era articles with today's historical occurance: for the first time, a woman sits on the Church's Public Affairs committee. That woman, Sister Neill Marriott, today participated as the first ecclesiastical spokewoman for the Church at an official press conference, presenting with three apostles. While her involvement wasn't, of course, the focus of the important comments, I feel it demonstrated a new level of cooperative administration at the general level. Now, what opportunities do we have to emulate this cooperation at our local levels?
What I'm Reading:
Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools. Michael Horn and Heather Staker. Staker and her husband, Allan, are the founders of the new company I will be working for, Brain Chase. And she's one of the only people who actually uses the term "disruption" appropriately and understanding its full theory. She's passionate about bringing online learning into our traditional, factory-style classrooms, and her vision of our children's future is inspiring to me as I jump into this new adventure.
