District of Innovation concept will give Burnet CISD flexibility

John F. Kennedy is quoted as saying, “When written in Chinese, the word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.” When students make a poor choice at home or at school, it can create a crisis within the family or school. While it is easy for a teacher or parent to identify the danger aspect of a poor choice, sometimes it is more difficult to focus on the opportunity of the poor choice. The reality is that there are natural consequences associated with the choices we make as students and as adults. If a student doesn’t complete an assignment and receives a failing grade, then that can be a mini crisis, but the natural consequence of the failing grade can serve as an opportunity to learn from the situation. As tough as it is to watch our young people not meet our expectations, it is an important part of maturing to face the natural consequences of choice.
