Education is broken ~ TEDxPhilly – Chris Lehmann

March 26, 2011
  • Principal of Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia.  On PSSA standardized testing ~2:20 “What we are doing today today is worse than what you think.  We give them pretests and find out what they are worst in.  And then we give them more of that [and try to fix it]… iIt’s only making sure you don’t suck so much at the things you’re bad at.” Definitely worth the 15 minutes!

    • Encourage learning by allowing students to do things they are good at instead of restricting them. While that may sound elementary, Lehmann’s speech carves out an innovative way to teach students success so they will strive for success in the post-graduate world.
