    We agree that technology is the gateway to the world present and future.
    Presently students can work from classroom webcams when they are homebound. Seat time will no longer be a limiting factor in terms of graduation requirements because of long distance learning opportunities.

    comment from trend 6

    We cannot allow the fast pace of technology to kill student interest in creative thought, imagination, and critical thinking.

    furthermore, emphasis on technology without due attention to collaboration, personalization, personal communication, will not lead to a better world in itself. we will just know about the problems sooner.

    We agree with the article siting constructivism as a critical component of multicultural instruction.
    The importance of developing tolerance and respect so that students value all peers regardless of culture and economic status.

    comments from trend 2 to trend 16
    We believe the following 3 items are the most important:
    1) The school district needs to think about how human capital is utilized in education. In particular, we need to reflect upon how we provide training to support effective teaching.
    2) One way to do this is to increase planning opportunities for teachers to work together to develop lessons, projects and to evaluate student outcomes and adult actions as a team.
    3) Lifestyle concerns need to be addressed, i.e., affordable housing, childcare and plans for teachers with pre and school age children. If we don't address these professional concerns, we will not be able to attract and keep the quality educators our district requires.

    comment from trend 6
    if the majorities become minorities and minorities become majorities, who will become tolerant of whom?

    will our history (oral, visual, and written) be revised?

    it seems that even though the numbers of minorities students has increased, there seems to be very little increase in the number of minority teachers. what is the explanation for that observation?

    why aren't schools inspiring minority students to become educators?
