Be bold. Think big. Change Schools.
Everyday we’re problem solving—but deep down we know the system is no longer working. Do we just keep trying harder, or do we dare to transform how we “do school?”
In The Drivers: Transforming Learning for Students, Schools, and Systems, renowned authors Michael Fullan and Joanne Quinn build on their previous books and lay out a complete model for transforming teaching and learning. The goal: making sure students are actually prepared to live and thrive in the complex world around them. Learn to:
- Orient students, staff, and community around the four drivers: wellbeing and learning, social intelligence, equality investments, systemness
- Believe that young people can generate more l magic in the world if we enable them
- Take cues from five school communities who have successfully embarked on system change
- Lead, develop, and connect with others at different stages of system change
Schools are not meant to be solely feeders to MBAs, Ph.Ds, or corporate boardrooms. When we see schools as local hubs of innovation, and model for students what it means to be community-focused, we will renew the relevancy of our most valuable institutions.
