Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 2015 4:32 PM

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!

Low-Income Students: More Going to College, But Few Earning Degrees

Low-Income Students: More Going to College, But Few Earning Degrees | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
A troubling good news/bad news pattern has developed among our low-income students: They're going to college in greater numbers than ever, but only a small fraction are leaving with degrees. 

A report released Thursday offers the latest opportunity to see the pattern in multicolored charts and graphs. They paint a portrait of two generations of low-income students who have raised their college sights only to stumble before securing the payoffs of a degree. Educators and activists worry that the pattern could limit their potential earnings and social mobility.

"When I look at these statistics, I think maybe we are profoundly and unequally fostering disincentives to higher education participation, especially among low-income students," Margaret Cahalan, the director of the Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education, said during a call with reporters last week.

The data in the report by the Pell Institute and the University of Pennsylvania Alliance for Higher Education and Democracy, known as PennAHEAD, aren't new. Other researchers, including the University of Michigan's Susan Dynarski, have pointed out that the bachelor's degree completion rates for low-income students lag far behind their college-enrollment rates.  A demographic study, highlighted by the New York Times, showed that for poor students, four-year-degree completion for children born in the 1970s and 1980s barely budged, while it soared for children from the most affluent families. 

Like other studies, the Pell report illustrates the many ways that money serves as a key barrier to college completion for low-income students. It details the rising cost of college, and the shift of a larger chunk of college costs onto families.

Too often leaders simply expect too little of their people and it has to stop.

 


He was committing the cardinal sin while leading his people by selling his employees short.


An all too common issue with leadership in the workplace is people in these roles not giving their reports a fighting chance. Not only do people want to be led, but they deserve a leader who is willing to give up control and responsibility to help them to become the best version of themselves.  


Stop selling your employees short and allow your people to flourish by enacting these ideas:

Emotional Intelligence

The third quality of a great leader is one who is emotionally intelligent. Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions and recognize, understand and manage the emotions of others. An emotionally intelligent leader is usually calm and grounded, empathetic, and is able to deal with conflict between people. Another important quality of an emotionally intelligent leader is the ability to take care of herself -- to manage her stress, health, relationships, and so on.

You'll recognize an emotionally intelligent leader if you feel listened to and understood. He won't be distracted, seemingly impatient, or offering what might feel like rote responses to your questions. You can also ask a leader questions such as: How do you care for yourself? How do you manage stress? How do you respond to your staff's stress? And you can ask staff about their leader: How does the principal show his frustration or anger? Do you feel that your principal listens well and cares about you? How does your principal deal with conflict amongst staff? How does your principal demonstrate appreciation for you?

Emotional intelligence in a leader has been found to be the number one predictor of an organization's ability to be successful. Although leaders with high EQ are less common, they are out there.

The 5 Levels of Trust | Jesse Lyn Stoner

The 5 Levels of Trust | Jesse Lyn Stoner | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
What is Trust?
As important as trust is, one of the problems is we are not always talking about the same thing when we talk about trust. Trust is a general, all-encompassing word that means many different things.
Huge misunderstandings can occur when we talk about “trust.” If you say you don’t trust someone, do you mean you don’t believe they are honest or do you mean you don’t believe you can depend on them to get the job done on time? If someone says they don’t trust you, what exactly don’t they trust?
There are different levels and intensity of trust. Honesty is a more basic level and has a stronger intensity than dependability.
Understanding the levels of trust and their intensity can help you build a strong foundation of trust and communicate more clearly when others violate your trust.

Self-Awareness Can Help Leaders More Than an MBA Can

Self-Awareness Can Help Leaders More Than an MBA Can | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Bill George, a professor of leadership at Harvard Business School, and former CEO of Medtronic, says that self-awareness is the starting point of leadership. Self-awareness is the skill of being aware of our thoughts, emotions, and values from moment to moment. Through self-awareness, we can lead ourselves with authenticity and integrity — and in turn better lead others and our organizations.

We conducted a survey of more than 1,000 leaders in more than 800 companies in over 100 countries, and found that leaders at the highest levels tend to have better self-awareness than leaders lower in the hierarchy. This could be because stronger self-awareness accelerates the promotion process, or because, like Vince, we’re nudged toward enhancing our self-awareness as our leadership responsibility increases.

Fortunately for all of us, self-awareness can be enhanced. Simple steps can be taken to complement one’s traditional leadership skills with it.

How self-aware are you? It's not too hard to find out, and it's so important!

Tom Wojick's curator insight, April 26, 9:13 AM

“My ego had run amok. I was leading from my head and not from my heart.” This is not uncommon; it happens not only in leadership, it happens in relationships. We don't teach self-awareness in school; we have to seek it. Yet it is critical to success not just in business, but in life. This article offers some helpful tips, however I recommend exploring and developing one's emotional intelligence. I recommend 6 Second's model of EQ: Know Yourself, Choose Yourself and Give  Yourself. It will help you not only become more self-aware, it will help you put that awareness into productive and useful action.

32 Tips For Building Better Relationships With Students - TeachThought

32 Tips For Building Better Relationships With Students - TeachThought | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Building relationships with students isn’t always simple, but it’s crucial to the well-being and academic growth of all students.

Part of the reason it’s not, in fact, ’simple’ is because every student is different and there are few universal rules for engaging students. In the same way connecting with colleagues and people in your personal life can be complicated because of different contexts, interests, personalities, and communication patterns, connecting and building relationships with students in the classroom can be equally challenging.

And a distinction should be made here between building a ‘working relationship’ and authentic relationship with students. Because of your position of authority in the classroom, a ‘working relationship’ with a students is a matter of ‘classroom management’ in pursuit of ‘student engagement.’ This approach can be efficient, but the clinical tone leaves a lot on the table for the growth of students.

If you are able to authenticate that ‘working relationship’ with genuine interest and personalization, more human and affectionate terms for that relationship can grow, resulting in the often-elusive ‘student engagement’ while also making your job—and life—easier, and your classroom a more enjoyable place for everyone to be.

How To Train Yourself To Take Feedback Well

How To Train Yourself To Take Feedback Well | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it


And while goals and growth plans are great, sometimes the best ideas for change come from an awareness outside of ourselves. I know, it sounds weird to hear a leadership coach telling you to look for something outside of yourself. I’m all about tuning into that courageous and all-knowing voice who can tout your fabulousness–it’s good stuff. But let’s get real: Sometimes the only way to get perspective about what needs to change comes from an outside perspective. Yes, believe it or not, there is often a gap between who we desire and think we are presenting to the world, and the way others see us.

Out of all the employees and business leaders whom I have interviewed over the years, the vast majority of them have always told me that culture is what they care about most. Unlike the physical and technological environments, cultural environment isn't something that you can see, taste, touch, or breath in. This is the only environment that you feel. That feeling is the pit in your stomach when you don't want to go to work or the excitement and butterflies you get from wanting to go to work. Simply put, the cultural environment is the vibe of your organization and the actions that are taken to create that vibe or feeling.

The Eisenhower Productivity Matrix

The Eisenhower Productivity Matrix | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Working within the education sector invariably throws together so many tasks that producing a simple to-do list is sometimes just not enough. When faced with a complex to-do list, the usual temptation can be to procrastinate, leaving the important and urgent items on the list festering away until last-minute panic sets in.


Widely recognised as one of the most productive USA presidents, the 34th incumbent, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s productivity has been extensively researched, and by far one of the most useful strategies he is credited for devising is now known as the Eisenhower Box. It’s a simple method to help you avoid procrastination and prioritise what you should be working on.
