Dr. David Vroonland shares how Texas' Mesquite ISD is decoupling from standardization and selling out to purpose over strategy.
Dr. David Vroonland has always believed that the purpose of education is to equip children with the tools they need to become self-determined adults. As the nature of work has changed in the US, Vroonland has spearheaded programs in his district to make sure its students are ready–no matter what paths they choose to pursue once they graduate.
To make this happen, Vroonland celebrates elevating purpose over strategy, both in his district programming and his own leadership. This has fostered an environment where fast-paced innovation serves to support a district where students are able to take ownership over their own highly individualized learning paths.
In this episode, Vroonland shares how decoupling from standardization has made Mesquite ISD a better place to work and a better place to learn.
