What is a Critical Feedback Group Experience?

The Critical Feedback Group enables the professional and personal growth needed to courageously lead for equity in your school community.

A RI School Leader Reflects on the Value of the Critical Feedback Group

"CFG has given me the tools to form a collaborative adult culture in my school.  I feel confident addressing my staff when we stray from our mission, vision, and norms.  CFG has also given me the space to collaboratively problem solve school based challenges in a productive and confidential space.  Thanks to the diverse attendants, the probing questions or solutions I consider...strengthen the action steps I take at my school.  I will be back to CFG again next year."
