The way school should be..
Students are guide by mentors s
who help to develop their
individual education plans and
monitor their progress.
Mentors develop strong
professional relationships
with students and their families.
Students learn to monitor their own
progress and become responsible
for managing their education.
Reading, writing, and math labs are part of the daily curriculum where students work in small groups with teachers to improve their skills.
Labs also provide support for students in completing their assignments.
Metacognition: Thinking about thinking. Students learn strategies to improve their memory, comprehension, and problem-solving strategies.
Because education is too important
It seems as if everyone who has ever been in school has an idea about how schools should be. Yet when educators hear these suggestions many respond with a litany of excuses, the most
popular reasons
seem to focus on
money.
Teachers know how to motivate this student.
Barriers to School Improvement
Bureaucracy: those in charge are removed from the classroom. Resulting changes being made
without full knowledge of the conditions that the schools face.
Threat rigidity results from focusing on finding
blame
rather than
seeking solutions
has caused educators to be resistant to change.
Public education is caught in the middle of political rivalries with both sides pushing for what they think is right
regardless of what research suggests to be best for children.
Lack of input from stakeholders. Parents and students
not included in problem-solving or decision-making.
Solving educational problems with piecemeal programs. If education was only a matter of writing a check to buy a program then
it would have already been cashed.
Computers are not a replacement for good instruction, they are not babysitters to "engage students," and they are not fancy pens and pencils. The potential of web 2.0 and 3.0 advancements are largely untapped in most classroom instruction.
"The problems that exist in the world
today cannot be solved by the level
of thinking that created them."
Einstein
Schools are not in need of reform, they need to
change
to meet the changing requirements of society and needs of students. NCLB reform efforts most often result in increasing the intensity of ineffective instruction.
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again an expecting different results."
What if school was invented today?
Open source education
The business model of old is no longer viable. Open source products are becoming superior to those offered for profit (does anyone remember Encarta?). Major corporations are recognizing the power of sharing. Education needs to follow suit.

Check out:
Distributive Leadership
Schools led through distributive leadership (DL) produce students that perform higher on standardized tests (Heck & Hallinger, 2009). Distributive leadership increases the commitment of stakeholders to insure the success of the school. Leadership in a DL model challenges individuals to improve in order to lead. The efforts of the school to improve are increased because everyone is working to make things better.

Student Learning Needs
Self-regulatory efficacy
Caprara, G. V., Fida, R., Vecchione, M., Del Bove, G., Vecchio, G. M., Barbaranelli, C., & Bandura, A. (2008).
Longitudinal analysis of the role of perceived self-efficacy for self-regulated learning in academic continuance and achievement. Journal of Educational Psychology, 100(3), 525.
The ability of students to regulate their own learning is essential for promoting learning in the 21st Century. Self-Regulatory learning skills allow students to conduct their own research. Self-efficacy is the confidence level that students have about their ability to complete a task successfully. Students with higher self-efficacy perform tasks better.

High levels of Support
When thinking about the way school should be,
the
wrong
questions are:
What should schools look like?
this?
OR
this?
?
Why Not..
This?
OR
this?
Or even ...
this?
Technology
How about what should teachers do to support learning?
?
YES
The answer is ...
The answer is ...
It depends
Start with why...
To"ensure that we as a society meet our social compact to prepare children for
their future
rather than our past" (Slade & Griffith, 2013. p.23)

Then ask...
Emotional Intelligence:
Emotional intelligence is equally as important as cognitive intelligence in work place performance (Cote & Miners, 2006). It plays a key role in our ability to interact with others and can be developed. But should it be taught in the classroom?
Lead with your heart.
Morals and Ethics
Should students receive education in morals and ethics? What does that look like? How is it evaluated? What values should our school stress?
Who are the children that will attend this ideal school?
The idea is that we are building a school for students. Starting with an understanding of the "whole child" who enters the school enables us to create a school that can get our students to the places they want to go.
What should a student 's ideal day look like?
Thinking about our students' needs, expectations, and dreams. How can we arrange a day to meet all of their needs so that they can learn best?
Remember this is the ideal day not the day as it happens in other schools or the day that you grew up with.
What do students need to know and be able to do in order to insure their success in the future?
How do students learn best?
What relationships should teachers, students, parents, administrators, and the community have?
How does the school meet all of the educational needs of its students?
How will the school raise money?
How will we know when they get there?
