LIVE BLOG: Rethinking Student Motivation: Why Understanding the “Job” is Crucial for Improving Education- Michael Horn

31 01 2012

ISASTC Session Description

In most school reform efforts the focus is on the schools. The question we
typically ask is, “Why aren’t schools performing as they should?” Perhaps a
key reason we’re so dissatisfied with the state of public K-12 education is
that we’ve been asking the wrong question. If we asked instead, “Why aren’t
students learning?” perhaps we might see things that others have yet to
perceive. After all, it’s the children’s performance that should concern us.
The performance of a school is little more than the sum of the performance
of its students.
