My TEDx Talk: Education is none of your business

Published on Jul 28, 2016
We’ve been told to not fix something that isn’t broken; but, what if something IS broken? Chris Shade uses his background in education to spotlight a significant fallacy in the way education is run and the detriment it is causing on our nation’s students.
Chris Shade, Director of School Improvement, led the Denton ISD community through the rebranding of the district mission and logo through social media and is leading the development of an alternative accountability rating system reflecting the community’s values to add to the State’s current rating system.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
