Section 3: Early planning
A student commission on learning isn’t a quick fix solution to a school improvement need. It is a long-term endeavour that requires time not only for the effective planning and delivery of a range of activities, but also for the whole school to prepare to take on the new ideas and approaches the commission will recommend. This kind of change can’t be achieved in less than 18 months to two years and requires extensive early planning.
