The Path to Higher Ed: Building College and Career Readiness
Dr. Jared Cotton, Valuing What We Measure vs. Measuring What We Value
This episode features Dr. Cotton, the Superintendent for Henry County Public Schools in Collinsville, Virginia. Dr. Cotton shares insight into how his district is both tech-driven and student-driven at the same time. We discuss how technology can be a game changer in providing more equity in the college admissions process. His caveat is that technology has to be used at a high level in a way that allows for immediate and consistent feedback to students. He also strengthens student voice in the process by applying their feedback in decision-making around course offerings and relationship-building between teachers and students.
