Focus on principles and processes (systems) more than the end product (goals) to increase happiness and success.

Interesting article on the process rather than the goals that aid success.

Our students of poverty enter school behind and by the time they are in middle school, the achievement gap has widened.  Often the answer is to remove the struggling students from electives and place them in remediation courses for math or reading, robbing them of the rich contribution arts makes to the lives of middle and upper class children. Innovation must guide our efforts to close the gap, providing not just remediation but enrichment to our children of poverty.

Actions Speak's curator insight, August 17, 2015 10:54 AM

In a weak culture, unacceptable performance is rewarded.  The standard for what is acceptable gets lowered.

 

Our public education system is not best in class.  Education bureaucrats are getting rewarded for unacceptable performance.  Too many kids are not getting an education that prepares them to effectively compete .

 

What kind of questions would you ask if you were a top education leader in your state, county, or city?

 

How about some of these?

 

1) when are going to stop passing kids that can't do the work at the current level?

2) how are we going to close learning gaps with a sense of time is of the essence?

3) what needs to change in our approaches to teaching to drastically improve learning results?

4) if what we are supposed to achieve is kids learning at a high level then what about all the resources allocated to transportation, duplicate administrators, government edicts, athletics, ...?

5) what do other cultures with high performance education systems do differently?

6) do you ask the teachers what they need to close gaps and energize the kids to learn at a much higher level?

7) do you have the courage to think out of the box and go against the politically correct that rewards blind compliance to government ideology?

 

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn" -- Ignacio Estrada 

 

Isn't it time to rethink our approach?

 

Yes.  It is way past time!

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, July 26, 4:27 PM
This article is wonderful and asks us to think about what we're REALLY doing in education today. Yes, we know how kids learn but are we providing the best possible facilitation of that process? If we're honest, the answer is "no." School is designed to work for the adults in the building but don't necessarily provide the kind of environment where curiosity and play drive learning. I'm going to stick my neck out and say that, while we have a long way to go, libraries can be key to this kind of learning environment. If we've stepped out from behind the circulation desk we know that providing resources for a student to explore their passions, personalizing learning by giving students choices, and being a guide towards information (rather than simply delivering information) then we've already created the kind of environment discussed in this article. What else can you do to provide a model for a more student-centered school? How can you lead from the library? It's time to stop thinking that technology is going to be the game changer. WE are the game-changers! Enjoy.
