So I think today was a major change to what we usually do at the office. I really like the school committees a lot! I believe that as a smaller group, we can get more things accomplished and be more specific on our recommendations now that we have two topics to mainly focus on.
I now there is some tension in my group, but I know not every group is perfect and will clash at some point. As we work together more, I believe we will adjust to the culture of the group and eventually make it function like it should. There are people in the group that feel left out...SPEAK UP! seriously, tell us what's on your mind, stop me from talking...make any signal possible to get the other group members attention. Everyone's input is soooo important! I hope the group will work better tomorrow!
I enjoyed hearing from our guest speakers today. They both had different experiences as a member of a high school. Resources are truly important for students to improve academically but also become more knowledgeable about the class, project etc..
I don't believe the LSC is a trustworthy resource. It may be composed of teachers, community members, parents and a student representative but sometimes it is not the best choice of school decision making. I feel that my school's LSC overpowers the school and the student rep doesn't really have a say in the meetings, whats the point of a student rep then? Students are the ones who use the resources, get taught, participate in extracarricular activities and deal with the schools staff and administration...shouldn't we be entitled to voice our opinions in the LSC or create something similar to one but just composed of students? I strongly believe so.
