"Anything we can do to create models for young people as they are growing up as to what it’s like to live in an environment where ethics and morality is what we aspire to -- we don't necessarily achieve it but we aspire to it -- and if we screw up how can we do a better job, I think that's the best gift we can give young people growing up in any society."

 systems moving from poor to fair rely far more heavily on policies that “tightly control teaching and learning processes from the center because minimizing variation across classrooms and schools is the core driver of performance improvement at this level.” Systems working to go from good to great, by contrast, “provide only loose guidelines on teaching and learning processes because peer-led creativity and innovation inside schools becomes the core driver for raising performance at this level.

What does that have to do with education reform in America? A lot, actually.

 

They released themselves from a top-down approach and gave more autonomy to the teachers/schools.  They valued the group over the individual.  They committed to the plan and implemented it well.  

 

Easy!

Educação ainda não é vista como fator de crescimento no Brasil dizem executivos

Para empresários de vários setores que se reuniram no Fórum Alta Gestão, em Copacabana, na zona sul do Rio de Janeiro, nesta quarta-feira (12), um problema enfrentado ainda no mercado brasileiro é a falta de qualificação de profissionais. Segundo eles, a grande solução é a educação.
O professor Arnaldo Niskier, presidente do Conselho de Administração do CIEE (Centro de Integração Empresa Escola) Rio, disse que é preciso ter vontade política para estimular a atuação dos professores no Brasil.
— É preciso que a educação seja o grande fator de crescimento do país. Eu defendo a tese de que é necessário ter uma vontade política, sobretudo dos governantes, no sentido de oferecer melhores condições para que ela possa cumprir o seu papel. Não é só o salário dos professores, é preciso também que eles sejam estimulados com melhores condições de trabalho.
