What if our machine worked differently? What if our notification console gave us green lights and thumbs up instead of those alarming and anxiety creating red and orange lights (those things give the amazing color of red a bad name...). Below is a great nugget from the Blunt Educator:
As leaders of schools it is our job and role to be sharing the positive stories and learning narratives of our campuses and classrooms, but we cannot do it alone. We must look for opportunities to engage our community and also grow them in their ability to be the positive squeaky wheel.Don't let the only squeaky wheel at school be a negative wheel. Speak up when things go well or negativity becomes identity of the school.

Our community's voice is huge in the identity of our campus and classroom. We want our students' and families' voice to be heard and we want it to have a positive impact on our campus' and classrooms' identity and brand. Let me leave you with the following question to tweet about (use the hashtag #EDentity) or to leave a comment about: What are some ways you are facilitating your silent majority to raise their voice and be heard?
