- most of our students will forget most of the content that they “learn” in school.
- most of our students are bored and disengaged in school.
- deep, lasting learning requires conditions that schools and classrooms simply were not built for.
- we’re not assessing many of the things that really matter for future success.
- grades, not learning, are the outcomes that students and parents are most interested in.
- curriculum is just a guess.
- separating learning into discrete subjects and time blocks is not the best way to prepare kids for the real world.
- the system of education as currently constructed is not adequately preparing kids for what follows if and when they graduate.
- learning that sticks is usually learned informally, that explicit knowledge accounts for very little of our success in most professions.
