Preparing Students for a Successful Future

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

These kids today…

This is often the first thing that you will hear from business owners and employers when asked about how the public education system can better prepare students for the future.

Businesses want to hire well educated, motivated, hard working critical thinkers – but business owners tell me that finding new graduates with those qualities can be very difficult.

Instead, I hear all kinds of complaints that we are graduating students with an over inflated sense of entitlement and an unwillingness to start at an entry level position and work up the ladder.

As we move towards an increasingly globalized economy, we are not doing our students any favours by perpetuating the illusion that you can be successful without hard work.

In the following article, I will share some of my ideas for how we could better prepare our students for a successful future.

Sincerely,

Dawn Danko

Dawn Danko Answer’s Questions About Technology In The Classroom

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

In 2014 the Public School Board officially endorsed the promotion of 21st century learning skills.

However, all too often this simply means allowing students access to mobile phones during class time and replacing textbooks with iPads.

In the interview below, I share my own ideas about the role of technology in the classroom and the direction I would take the Board if elected trustee on October 27th, 2014.

Please leave me a message in the comments, I would really appreciate your input!

Sincerely,

Dawn Danko Discusses School Closures and Her Approach To Problem Solving

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

School closures have been a difficult and controversial topic on the Central Mountain over the last few years.

Our neighbourhoods have been decimated by the surprise loss of Hill Park Secondary school.

We are also facing further upheaval as a result of the recent elementary school closure decisions.

At the close of the Central Mountain elementary school review, I presented a delegation to the current HWDSB Trustees that outlined what I think is a new and modern approach to problem solving that has been absent at the Board level for some time.

Please watch the video below for more information and please leave a comment to share your thoughts.
