What happens when you change the system?

November 1, 2018

Check out this article from Sir Ken Robinson.  This is an article about the transformation of an ELEMENTARY school in Massachusetts that employed 6 security guards and no backpacks could be carried for the fear of students carrying in weapons. 

 

From the article:

"The school had more than eight hundred students, most of whom qualified for free or reduced lunches. Half the students were learning English as a second language, and one in five were on individual learning plans for special needs. The school’s problems were not its students, Bott said. It needed a new approach to education. Having a broader curriculum, rich in the arts, engaged the whole student and promoted higher levels of achievement across the board."

 

The takeaway:

"The transformation of Orchard Gardens didn’t depend on any new laws being passed. All it took was a leader with the vision to see beyond the conventional habits of schools to the opportunities to do education differently."
