What kind of life are we preparing kids for?
IT TAKES SYSTEMIC CHANGE
Systems Theory tells us that when you optimize a single subsystem, the performance of the system as a whole is degraded. If we optimize school systems for the single outcome of high test scores, we are degrading the capacity of the system overall. To optimize the whole system, we need a balancing metric, one that drives the system towards balance and stability and optimal performance.
Student Agency is such a balancing outcome.
A balanced school system not only leads to deeper learning and essential skills, it supports the human and humane practices for developing a child’s potential that lie at the heart of teaching.
