ARCADIA: Changing High Schools for the Real 21st Century | [Beverly Enwall]

ARCADIA: Changing High Schools for the Real 21st Century

There has to be a reason for learning, and it has to be one that makes sense to the learner. The purpose of education is not to preserve the good old days nor is it to create a Utopia in the midst of our imperfect society. The mission of a school is to provide education, the kind of education that helps each child explore and develop his or her individual abilities. We've lost sight of that. And until we "fix" that, we will not fix the system. It cannot be fixed by band-aids nor by bandwagons. But it can be addressed with common sense and a willingness to evict a few sacred cows from the pastures.

Publisher's Summary

There has to be a reason for learning, and it has to be one that makes sense to the learner. The purpose of education is not to preserve the good old days nor is it to create a Utopia in the midst of our imperfect society. The mission of a school is to provide education, the kind of education that helps each child explore and develop his or her individual abilities. We've lost sight of that. And until we "fix" that, we will not fix the system. It cannot be fixed by band-aids nor by bandwagons. But it can be addressed with common sense and a willingness to evict a few sacred cows from the pastures. To turn your high school into an Arcadia will not require great sums of money. But it will require work, and it will require a bit of courage.
