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.
