Have You Heard About Vision 20/20?

November 25, 2014

Have you heard about Vision 20/20? No, we're not talking about the same 20/20 vision your doctor talks about. We're talking about vision, but a vision for the future. A vision for the future of public education in Illinois.

Vision 20/20 is an initiative that has been in the works for almost 2 years. It was initially started by the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA), which is the professional organization for Superintendents in Illinois. But other groups quickly became part of it once they heard about it. They include the Illinois Principal's Association (IPA), the Illinois Association of School Business Officials (IASBO), the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools (IARSS), and the Superintendents' Commission for the Study of Demographics and Diversity (SCSDD). Sound like a lot of groups that are invested in public education in Illinois? These are some of the premier organizations that support public education in our State. And by the way, the Illinois Parent/Teacher Association (PTA) just signed up to lend their support to this initiative, too!

Vision 20/20 is all about promoting the positive in public education, and opening dialogue to address four key areas that impact public education. Those are:

  • Highly Effective Educators
  • 21st Century Learning
  • Shared Accountability
  • Equitable and Adequate Funding

This initiative was officially announed at the Joint IASB/IASA/IASBO Annual Conference in Chicago on November 21st. You can find out more about it at http://illinoisvision2020.org and by watching this video. We invite you to visit that website to learn more about how you can support the future of public education in Illinois, and to be part of the conversation. Don't take our word for it...check it out yourself!
