Students and teachers alike are anticipating a wonderful holiday season, and across our state schools are humming with activity as learning continues right up to the holiday vacation. Of course, while families prepare to celebrate the holidays, it’s important to remember that “learning never takes a vacation.”

I’m really pleased that Governor Chafee has called together a 17-member Educator Autonomy Working Group, whose charge is “to make specific recommendations on ways we can provide more flexibility for teachers, principals, and superintendents in order to improve the learning experiences to all Rhode Island students.”
