Nancy Jones's curator insight, January 12, 2014 12:01 PM

I particularly like the part that concerns  to train for positive assertion versus constant compliance. The compliance to please teachers versus the ownership of learning all  to please parents often provides a conflict for me. 

Jenn Alevy's comment, January 13, 2014 3:44 AM
The only concern I have and I have not read the book, is that her assertions seem to be feeding into the culture of fear and would like to see the stats she refers to when she says youth crime is on the rise. And whose morals is she talking about? People come from a variety of countries and cultures, I hope she does not assume we are all on the same page about 'moral' issues, she may be more conservative while others are more liberal in their beliefs.
Ness Crouch's curator insight, January 14, 2014 9:30 PM

This is an important article. Some teachers find themselves in situations where they are teaching ethical behaviour to children. This is worth a read.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 4, 2014 6:47 PM

Innovation does come from anywhere. We lose sight that innovation is not something that exists in the mainstream. It usually comes from the boundaries and the margins. Leadership is about guiding the innovation and continually casting on eye to the margins.

Patrick Peterson's curator insight, April 27, 2014 2:20 PM

Google emphasizes a good ideas can come from anywhere. Innovators also learned from failure  as  they build upon what they learned.
