Randolph Thomas, US Virgin Islands Department of Education, on Research Alliances


RANDOLPH THOMAS: While many
mainland educational systems are in close proximity to
others and can share and collaborate, it’s not so easy in
the Virgin Islands, or even in Puerto Rico, which
is another island. So to have this impetus to
encourage us to collaborate, and to share, and to have a
discussion, I think it’s going to be quite beneficial to our
students, because I think we’re going to be
more creative. We are going to get more
involved in best practices and actually implementing
improvement strategies that have worked. Or certainly, have the
opportunity to experiment with strategies that have worked for
others, and see whether or not they can work for us.
