I grew up witnessing education inequities all across the South, and now I wake up every day with a sense of urgency to close the achievement gap. I think we're at an opportune time in public education. We are beginning to learn what really works, but the task of moving entrenched bureaucracies to adopt proven strategies, innovate and gauge success based on student results — versus adult accomplishments or levels of activity — is Herculean. I believe that if we're going to fix public education on a grand scale, we have to start with an unshakeable belief in the limitless potential of every child. We must also recognize that it is our responsibility to ensure that all students reach their potential. On top of this sort of "cultural baseline," we need the know how — the proven strategies, approaches and techniques that turn beliefs into results in the classroom.

As a Broad Resident, Elliot Smalley worked with Charleston County School District as Deputy of Strategic Planning and Communications.
