Philosophy of Education

We believe that our public schools are entrusted with...

We believe that our public schools are entrusted with developing in all our students the knowledge, skills, character, and values of discipline, responsibility, effort, honesty, fairness, and a desire for lifelong learning, all of which are needed to manage one's life and to serve society's best interests.

We believe that all students are entitled to develop their individual powers of intelligence: to think, to know, to reflect, to observe, to imagine, to appreciate, to question, and to judge. Such development should occur in a safe and nurturing environment.

We believe public education enhances the common good by instilling in its students a sense of the nation's history and tradition, and the connection between the past, the present, and the future. Moreover, public education should educate the students not only to recognize, but also to appreciate the diversity that enriches our world. Finally, public education should instruct the students in the rights and responsibilities of citizens in a free, democratic society.

As trustees of the Davis Joint Unified School District, we recognize that parents, students, the community, and the public school system all share in the responsibility of public education.
