I have been working at Concept Schools full-time
Concept Schools was created by scientists, engineers, computer technologists and mathematicians, so the first great things is decisions are data-driven and innovation is encouraged most of the time. If an idea is sound, it gets heard. Parent and community relationships are highly valued. I have not experienced this in other institutions.
Innovation is encouraged, but there is much hesitancy around taking risks. There is NO innovation without risk. There is so much potential, but it gets stymied by fear in senior management. The hope is that while growth is slow sometimes re: ideas....there is still evolution and progress.
Advice to Management
Diversify the staff more and embrace addressing inequities in education and edcuation leadership. Providing quality education is great (STEM), but not enough
