EISD Mission Statement of Mediocrity

Eanes Parents Unite

Feb 22 2022 • 31 mins


The longstanding mission statement for Eanes was focused on one word above all else…EXCELLENCE! The results have spoken for themselves - a high achieving school district that consistently produces sharp academic minds, world-class athletes, and bold innovators. Why then, we ask on today’s episode, has the school board decided to water down the mission statement from a striving message of excellence to an updated message of mediocrity and ambiguity?   We explore how these lower standards can be measured - if at all. This episode is about analyzing what a mission statement is supposed to do and asking how this new direction might affect the coursework, rigor, and trajectory of our kids' futures.
