"Schools are here to prepare today's children to be adults in tomorrow's world" - (MTSS for Secondary Schools - Solution Tree)
How do we ensure high levels of learning for ALL students? Through MTSS...
As educators, it is our job to ensure our students learn the essential skills, knowledge, and dispositions needed to succeed in their adult life.
If schools exist to prepare students to be adults, then we, as educators, must have an accurate vision of the future for which we are preparing our students.
(MTSS for Secondary Schools, Solution Tree, 2015)
