I have spent all of my adult life with one career and one passion: education. I have followed that passion as a teacher, principal, superintendent, parent and grandparent.
To me there has been no greater reward or more important job than helping someone learn. I am proud of what I and all of the talented people with whom I have worked have done.
But today I have to face the brutal truth that despite incredible achievements as a community and country, my generation has failed you.
