It is all about culture!

If we as a community are going to close many of the performance gaps we hear so much about today, it will be a result of a transformation of our culture. As used here, culture simply refers to everything we do. Learning (academic excellence) must become an expectation in our culture.

It is not so today. A learning culture goes beyond simply "valuing an education" A learning culture demands excellence, and does not excuse failure to perform with the usual poverty/racism chorus.

A learning culture is characterized by actions that confirm what we say we value.
