Stream or Download Dr. Randy Watson’s July 2019 Leadership Summit Keynote

Dr. Randy Watson, Kansas Commissioner of Education, recently spoke to 100+ ESSDACK superintendents, principals, and district leaders about the importance of the Kansans Can vision, the Redesign process, and the vital role schools play in the future of each Kansas student. It was a powerful message that we want to share with you.

We’ve chunked out his keynote into 13 smaller sections – each designed to lead stakeholder groups through an exploration of the current K-12 educational system and the power of the Redesign project. Our hope is that your conversations lead to an intense focus on the success of each student.
