The Great Conversation

GreatConversationforweb.pngNorth Montgomery is excited to offer our community a special educational opportunity. The public will have free access to an informative, entertaining video series called, The Great Conversation™. Viewers will gain a better understanding of public education’s success, how our schools have changed over time and the benefits we all enjoy when we work together to increase student achievement. This series is available below and can be viewed on a smartphone, tablet, or computer anytime.

The Great Conversation is hosted by Jamie Vollmer. Once a harsh critic, this former businessman and attorney has become an award-winning champion of America’s public schools.

"Your schools are teaching more students, in more subjects, to higher levels than ever before,” says Vollmer. “However, I’ve watched with rising alarm as the challenges our teachers face have changed. For decades, the mandate was relatively straightforward: ‘Teach my children.’ Now, it’s become: ‘raise my kids!’

Public schools are being asked to educate the most diverse, distracted, demanding generation of students the world has ever seen. These people need all the support they can get." The Great Conversation video series makes the case that in the ‘knowledge age’ everyone has a vested interest in increasing student achievement.
