Left-Brain Schools in a Right-Brain World | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
More and more, our world is driven by right-brain thought. Sadly, consider what's happening today in schools. With a poor economy, budget cuts are being made across the country.

 

Daniel Pink shares some helpful insights about how our brains function in his book, A Whole New Mind. He describes the difference between left-brain and right-brain thinking. He argues that the old world is a left-brain world. The new one is a right-brain world.

 

Part of our dropout problem can be summarized in one phrase:

 

===> we are preparing students in "Left-Brain" schools to enter a "Right-Brain" world. <===

 

The school does not resemble the world they'll enter after graduation. If they graduate at all.
