17,000? 17,000 hours.
17,000 hours is enough time to:
- walk around the world... twice, or
- train to be an architect and a licensed massage therapist and a black belt in karate, or
- sleep for 6 years.., or
- make an indelible imprint on the life of every public school student!
17,000 hours is the amount of time our K-12 students spend at school (not including homework or sports or extracurricular activities). Wow! That is a big life commitment!
So what does your community have to say about the value and impact of all those 17,000 hour experiences? And what insights can they share about how to continuously improve them?
