Mission Statements

School Mission Statements

Over the past decade, we have investigated the purpose of school and conducted numerous research studies on how schools, as an organization, define themselves.  In this time we have developed a unique rubric that helps illuminate how schools define their purpose and role through their mission statement.

In our book and on this website, we provide a variety of examples and resources for educators, school leaders, policy makers and anyone else considering how to better define and express the core values and purpose of schooling.
