I would love to be a teacher in a small, public school that serves the families in an urban neighborhood. The school would be exempt from standardized tests, and would use digital portfolios to promote and graduate students. The school would have about 432 K-12 students and about 40 staff members, which is small enough for these adults to meet and plan together as a whole group. There would be 6 teams with 4 full-time teachers, one team-leader, and one counselor. The remaining 4 staff members would share school-wide leadership responsibilities. The teams would be responsible for a range of four traditional grades: K-3, 2-4, 3-6, 5-8, 7-10, 9-12. Each team would be responsible for 72 from the 4 grads they are responsible for. Promotion from one team to another would be based on demonstration of specified outcomes at each of the six levels.
