The reason students do badly…

The main reason so many students are doing badly and even good students are not doing their best,  is that our schools,  firmly supported by school boards, politicians, and parents,  all of whom follow external control psychology,  adhere rigidly to the idea that what is taught in school is right  and that students who won’t learn it, should be punished.

This destructive,  false belief is best called schooling.

    Good to receive a positive response. The quote is one of William Glasser’s.

    Very true, Ma’am. Education has lost much of its creativity. There should be passion in education and a willingness to let the child be.
