Time for an overhaul of schools?

The author, Dr. Tony Sinanis, has put a lot of thought into his list of 43 Things We Need to Stop Doing in Schools.

A few that resonate with me:

  1. Making schools more about adults than kids.
  2. Killing the love of reading by making it about reading logs, assignments, or jotting every two seconds.
  3. Confusing technology with engagement
  4. Removing ‘soft data’ from our data walls, data meetings…we cannot just look at test scores at THE data point…
