certificate of recognition

draft idea...
How about JC society issuing a certificate?

I love to hate THE RUBBER ROOM


perhaps you and I can kick around the wording of a certificate of recognition


CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION

Whereas the John Corlette Society aims to dissemminate the principles of education developed by John Corlette

Therefore be it known by the members of our society that:


____________________ School

is hereby awarded recognition as a "John Corlette School."

Privileges that come with this certificate include 
- a listing of the school's name on the JC Society's website 
- a link to the school's website
- a description of the school's programs that have attracted the attention of our society that reflect an application of several principles laid out in a speech given by John Corlette in July 1973 (available for reading at JohnCorlette.com).

(draft wording of the certificate)   



Example:

How the Society learned about this school's programs:
A member of the society heard the principal mention that his school does not aim to "teach to the test"but instead presents programs that suppport development of the whole person."  

Specific paragraph(s) of Corlette's 1973 speech that describe objectives that are similar to the objectives of the school's program:
3, 5 and 17.

The wording of the certificate could also be simplified:




=========   



CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION

The John Corlette Society aims to disseminate the principles of education developed by John Corlette.
Let it be known by the members of our society that:


____________________ School

The JC Society would like to complete the following to enhance this recognition: 
- a listing of the school's name on the JC Society's website 
- a link to the school's website
- a description of the school's programs that have attracted the attention of our society.  The school's objectives are similar to several key principles laid out in a speech given by John Corlette in July 1973 (available for reading at JohnCorlette.com).
