But, how do we do that? 

That’s the question posed after each workshop when Sarah Henry presents at state and national principals’ conferences. 

Educators are impressed by the Brownsburg, Indiana school system’s undeniable success. It is one of the top growing districts in the state. It’s closing the education gaps for students of color. It enjoys the highest graduation rate in the state of Indiana. And most impressively, Brownsburg is doing this without the economic advantages that some of wealthier districts have.

Reorganizing to be in Alignment

“There are iniquities in schools across the country,” says Henry. “What we do to correct those inequities doesn’t cost a lot – it’s about realignment.” 

Brownsburg schools were ranked 27ᵗʰ out of approximately 290 public school districts when they first decided to make these changes. For the last seven years, they’ve been first


To explain the “how” of this remarkable turnaround, Henry and a colleague wrote a book: Arrows.

The book is a detailed description of how Brownsburg implemented these changes, and how other school districts can mimic what they’ve done, or tweak their current system to make sure all their ‘arrows’ are pointing in the same direction.

“As an educator, I always struggle with education inequities in our country, specifically based on where someone lives. My goal is to spread the knowledge that students can get a quality education, even if their school isn’t set up as optimal.”
