Education is the most important thing that a person can have to ensure success in life. Study after study has proven that the more education a person has correlates directly with higher income, more mobility, and a higher quality of life. For these reasons every school should teach the importance of lifelong learning.
There are four priorities that are vital to the success of school, and that need to be brought to educational institutes. These four are, community, coherence, climate, and commitment to character. Community would include the entire "learning community", or all stakeholders in the educational process. Coherence is having a clear-cut plan and seeing it through to the end. Climate is creating an environment conducive to learning, and commitment to character is ones inherent makeup to see your schools vision through to the end, even when naysayers try to derail that vision.
