To be honest, I wanted to lead excellence, far more than I wanted to design a model to make it happen. Had there been a model out there that valued people of all cultures, or that led excellent results for all, I’d have gladly run with it.

Read vision statements that affirm secondary and university renewal, and you’ll spot innovative learning opportunities for all. Observe classes in these same schools, though, and practical results appear far less impressive.

Rejuvenated secondary schools stoke life, zap brainpower, and replace mental myths with brain facts that reboot learning success. Secondary and higher education renewal, at least change for higher motivation and achievement though, takes faculty, parents and learners.
