Reclaim High School Brainpower

We see too many high school faculty fall prey to fatalities that shrink progress and rob brainpower. While progressive education is hard to beat, it’s also hard to find. It’s time to help steer educational organizations through bureaucratic barriers and beyond tough economies in order to reclaim brainpower for learning and growth. Key is to shift approaches, not merely add to school day,  or do more of the same and expect improvement, as Miami low-performing schools discovered.  It’s time to rebuild trust and power-up innovations that enhance success for teens in a changing world.

Patrick Bassett, president of the National Association of Independent Schools calls for more right-brain tasks that teach teens to take risks, create and problem solve like entrepreneurs, for instance.

Let’s change faculty and student compensation systems, as a way to measure and reward innovation with the brain more in mind. Could it happen in your community?
