We might think of schools as starships that have been in the orbit of a star that has died and is now a black hole that threatens to suck them in.
With courageous leadership, the time has come for them to break loose from that gravitational field and venture out to find a new star to orbit, one might allow the full potential of each student to be realized – where Creative Genius is unleashed.
To do so, each starship must reach an _escape velocity_: >In physics (specifically, celestial mechanics), escape velocity is the minimum speed needed for a free, non-propelled object to escape from the gravitational influence of a massive body, that is, to achieve an infinite distance from it. Escape velocity is a function of the mass of the body and distance to the center of mass of the body. wikipedia
Each school will have their own Path of Transformation and must find their own escape velocity depending on their size and the gravitational pull of their existing culture.
But we appreciate, now more than ever, that this process starts by Awakening Wonder.
