This We Believe: Keys To Educating Young Adolescents - National Middle School Association

The local school district is using This We Believe to guide a district-wide committee that is evaluating the Middle School curriculum and potentially redesigning it.  As an interested parent, I borrowed a copy and gave it a go.  I found it full of aspirational statements that were simultaneously good to have all collected into a single reference and on the other hand left me going "that's so obvious, why does it need to be written down?"   


I couldn't find enough interest or determination to read it all, but did read enough to get a flavor for it.
