Learning is a life-long endeavor. Every individual is capable of learning and deserving of respect. Responsibility for an enriched education is vested in the individual, family, school, and community. Educational excellence is achievable in relation to individual potential. Education must prepare learners to live and work in a complex, ever-changing global society. Improvement in the educational system is an ongoing process of analysis, collaboration, re-assessment, and openness to change. Social and emotional well-being is important to the teaching and learning process.
