Wisdom of the Crowd
On October 18, Wisdom of the Crowd debuts on CBS. The theme of this TV series is that large groups of people are smarter than an elite few. They are better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions and even predicting the future. For the past 25 years, I’ve observed this phenomenon in action. I’ve seen how wise and supportive citizens can be when they come together in an atmosphere of trust, listen to one another and focus on the educational needs of the children in their community. Tapping into the wisdom of the crowd is the foundation of the Ohio Public School Advocacy Network’s mission to provide Ohio’s citizens with a stronger voice in shaping statewide education policy.
