New Schools for a New Era

Today’s schools aren’t good enough though the teachers and principals are dedicated. They work with an old model developed 100 years ago. Almost everyone trying to improve schools struggle to get a little more mileage from the system. They have succeeded to an extent. Still, schools aren’t good enough for the modern era because performance needs to be better in many areas: too many students are bored and disengaged; citizenship skills like critical thinking are poorly developed in many students; 20th century work skills are not valued or measured.
