  28. 28. Do they feel worn out, worn down and exhausted; like they have battled their way through the day? Did they look forward to the end of each class? Do they have a stack of infraction slips? Are they ready to get home so they can “pass out”; or raid the fridge, for some alcohol because “they really need it?” IS THIS YOUR STAFF?
  29. 29. The difference in the way you answer these questions has a lot to do with whether or not they spent the day proactively, in control of when and how things happened in their classrooms or reacting to one and then another and another situation as behavior problems interrupted their lessons again and again.

  50. 50. CURRENT RESEARCH DRIVEN
  51. 51. The Gallup Student Poll surveyed nearly 500,000 students in grades five through 12 from more than 1,700 public schools in 37 states in 2012. We found that nearly eight in 10 elementary students who participated in the poll are engaged with school. By middle school that falls to about six in 10 students. And by high school, only four in 10 students qualify as engaged. Our educational system sends students and our country’s future over the school cliff every year. Student engagement with school and learning is a gold standard that every parent, teacher, and school strives to achieve. If we were doing right by our students and our future, these numbers would be the absolute opposite. For each year a student progresses in school, they should be more engaged, not less.
  52. 52. The drop in student engagement for each year students are in school is our monumental, collective national failure. There are several things that might help to explain why this is happening -- ranging from our overzealous focus on standardized testing and curricula to our lack of experiential and project-based learning pathways for students -- not to mention the lack of pathways for students who will not and do not want to go on to college. What’s more, among the many types of students whose engagement wanes during their time in the educational system are those who have high entrepreneurial talent. These are literally our economic saviors -- the future job creators for America. GALLUP, January 7, 2013
  53. 53. SPEAKING ABOUT JOBS…
  54. 54. 93% Employers strongly agree: A candidate's demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems is more important than undergraduate major.
  55. 55. They also want to ensure that every college graduate, no matter what their major is, achieves much higher levels of evidence- based reasoning, research skills and complex problem-solving skills [along with] ethical decision-making.” Another important criterion for employers, is that graduates demonstrate practical experience applying what they have learned. Want employees to demonstrate that they have the knowledge, and that they have the experience putting the knowledge to use in real-world settings. 'More Than a Major' April 10, 2013 By Zack Budryk Association of American Colleges and Universities
