And we make the work of team-based professional learning communities impossible.” - Mike Schmoker, “Refocus Professional Development” “The number one factor affecting student achievement is a guaranteed and viable curriculum.” – Robert Marzano, “What Works In Schools” "If there are gaps among teachers within buildings, there are virtual Grand Canyons among buildings in a district.” - Heidi Hayes Jacobs, “Mapping the Big Picture”
