This publication, from the New Hampshire Department of Education, represents our state’s story—the successes and struggles to transform an entire education system from the bottom up rather than the top down—to promote ownership and nurture real and lasting change.
The work to design and create this publication began more than 12 months ago, yet the stories we’re telling in here have a history much deeper than that. The publication walks through this history, providing insight into New Hampshire’s educational transformation, which includes: exploring the impetus of why we’re making these changes; our vision for the Granite state; models from our classrooms, districts and partnerships; the lessons we’ve learned and where we see our system moving from here. The narrative is threaded together with videos of our students, educators, parents, administrators, higher education leaders, policymakers, business community and educational organization partners as they share their experiences and reflections.
www.nhstoryoftransformation.com is the Web site that is home to the publication; from here you can access the live, multimedia version; watch a video welcome from Commissioner Barry and more. We look forward to hearing your feedback and reflections on the work.
