[Part 3] Schools “have no money”: 4 guidelines to get money
Posted by Bert Maes on September 21, 2009
Every day, schools want FREE stuff from me. They say they “have no money”.
I believe that schools will get the money they need, when they decide to:
(1) Use the full potential that is available in their neighborhood (e.g. private funds, local grants, company material & support, volunteers);
(2) Focus continually on becoming a better, more competitive, more attractive school (with a.o. better teacher development, focus on the right departments, modernize curricula, clean inspiring classrooms);
(3) Constantly monitor what is needed in the community (employee training needs, curriculum changes, project/research assistance, student apprenticeships) and accordingly develop new programs;
(4) Regularly communicate and market how they are changing their schools.
