We Have To Stop Pretending…

Here is my addition to Scott McLeoud’s #makeschooldifferent challenge. If you have not read his post, you can find it here.

When it comes to education, we have to stop pretending…

  • that a student’s GPA is an indication of their future success
  • that students who don’t do homework and pass every quiz and test should still fail a class
  • that suspending student’s changes their behavior
  • that students learn best listening to lectures while seated at desks in straight rows
  • that technology is the best tool for student remediation

Please join that conversation and share your ideas with the #makeschooldifferent hashtag.
