Stakeholder Engagement: Moving Michigan Toward a Knowledge Economy
Commencement Reflections, Pinkalicious, and Symphonic Thinking in the Conceptual Age
March 21, 2011
Please join us for a Commencement Celebration of the 2020 Graduating Class of the Whole New Mind (WNM) Academy on Monday, March 21 at the Kellogg Center. The WNM Academy has successfully prepared graduates to thrive in the conceptual age and has been called upon by the State to host a Best Practices Summit to share our results with other schools around Michigan.
In preparation for the Michigan Summit, guests at the WNM Commencement Celebration will travel back to the year 2011. Panelists will share ideas emerging in 2011 from the work across numerous stakeholder groups. Their ideas shaped what Michigan needed to do to move education policy (and school reform) forward to prepare learners for the knowledge economy and conceptual age. Following the discussion, participation in stakeholder groups will help us to tell the story of how this transformation occurred.
