I can’t help but make connections as I’m watching, reading, and listening to the two national political conventions. All party politics aside, there are so many overlaps to school cultures and the politics that happen inside our school buildings. So let’s play a game and have a little fun!

Below are four quotes, taken from interviews, articles, and quotes. These come from one of two worlds: the education world, as it relates to school culture. Or the presidential political world, coming from recent gatherings at the Republican National Convention or the Democratic National Convention.

So read the quotes, then pick an answer for each one.

National politics? Or school politics? Answers will be posted tomorrow. Have fun...leave your answers and thoughts below!
