Different perspectives make us all better

Lee Dykes and Kim Rutledge
When we look around the Headwaters community, there are a lot of things that we love. Our child’s connection with her friends and guides and the well-rounded education that focuses on student inquiry and knowledge as well as social and emotional growth come to mind. At the same time, we see some things that could be improved––socio-economic and racial diversity. 

We know that exposure to diverse backgrounds and perspectives is the best way to break down barriers and misconceptions, and a great education is the best way to make generational progress. And we know that, when students with different experiences and perspectives learn together, everyone benefits.
