What is a school of thought? Quite simply, it’s a collection or group of
people who share common characteristics of opinion or outlook of a philosophy, discipline, belief, social movement, or cultural movement. We created this blog to
share with you our efforts to further our common goal of providing a
high-quality education to all Pennsylvanians; to shine a light on public
education in the commonwealth; and to provide resources to parents, students,
advocates, and educators alike.
Posts will provide insight into Department programs and initiatives, offer
helpful tips and guides, and promote discussion of educational topics that
impact you. We’ll share a variety of success stories and best practices from
across the commonwealth, highlight #PAProudEducators and #SchoolsThatTeach,
bring you inside PDE to learn more about us and what we do, and much more.
Who should read this blog? You! This is a place for anyone with an interest in
or curiosity towards education.
We look forward to connecting with you via School of Thought.
