I've thought some more about it. I still hate it. Because exceptional doesn't mean good, or excellent; exceptional means that we are better than everybody else.
That's not my goal. We don't need to think of ourselves as better than everybody else. I was thinking about it earlier this summer, and I believe there is a candy that represents my goal.
Here's what I want, for all schools.
Schools that are good, and that have plenty of opportunities for all kids.
That's my new slogan: Good, and Plenty
