Two Days, One Pledge: At the Future Ready Summits, District Leaders Move from Vision to Action“Change is grief,” Aaryn Schmuhl said to the auditorium of over 300 school leaders drinking sweet tea and taking notes. “It’s a loss. That’s what I tell the leaders at my schools,” the assistant superintendent of Henry County School District continued. “You ask people to change how they do things and it’s going to take them some time to heal before things get better.” Schmuhl spoke on a panel at the Future Ready regional summit held last week in Atlanta, GA--the third of twelve summits planned for 2015. These gatherings are one component of the Future Ready initiative launched by the US Department of Education in late 2014 to help K-12 schools create a more personalized and digital learning experience for students.
