Random Thought: The Real Problem In Education

As I was on the plane yesterday, a thought struck me that I would like to share with you. There's a problem in education, and it's not the information, assessment, technological, or pedagogical problem that everyone is looking at.

There's a problem in education that is not going to be solved by higher salaries or higher test scores or new technologies or new methods and techniques or new programs or revamped administrations.

I'll just say that there's a people problem in education that very few are working on.

I'll leave it at that.

         Make it a good day.
