Elements of a School Culture of Achievement for All © Dr. Lourdes Ferrer www.drlourdes.net Minority Academic Achievement Specialist
What is culture? Culture is a  shared   frame of reference  for  interacting  with  one another and for  interpreting  the world in which we live. This common frame of reference includes communication, values, beliefs, and interpretations of experiences. It is reflected in customs, artifacts, rituals and ceremonies, legends, myths and stories.
The school culture has the power to either  invigorate   or  debilitate  the vital elements  of the school improvement process. It is deep, complex, powerful, highly experiential, and pervasive. Why is leaning about school culture so important?
What are the 10 elements of a school culture where all students can achieve academic success?
Possesses a strong vision 1) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],This vision must:
2) Believes in Effort-Based Education An effort-based school replaces the assumption that - aptitude determines what and how students learn with the assumption that - sustained and directed  effort  can yield high achievement for all students.
Operates based on  selective core values 3) ,[object Object],[object Object],Core values:
The  mission  answers the question – WHY do we exist? The  vision  answers the question - WHAT is it that we want to become (ideal) Values  answers the question – HOW do we advance toward that ideal?  Did you know that…
Exercises effective leadership 4) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Effective leaders:
"Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it."  Dwight D. Eisenhower
Celebrates the teaching profession 5) Teachers should receive the respect, prestige, and status that is commanded by other professions.  The community must recognize that teachers are at the heart of the educational enterprise.
In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone could have. Lee Iacocca Did you know that…
According to Goodlad (1984), merely holding teachers accountable for improving student learning without addressing internal and external negative circumstances is not likely to improve the quality of their professional lives and the schools in which  they teach. Did you know that…
Empowers teachers to be  leaders 6) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Teachers who perform as leaders:
Nourishes a spirit of teamwork 7) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Working in teams allows teachers to:
“ The days for ‘heroes’ are over. What we need now are  DREAM TEAMS . Individual teachers alone can’t take an entire school to  PROFICIENCY . This kind of endeavor requires an entire faculty.”  Dr. Lourdes Ferrer
Humanizes education 8) We must see our school system as a  people   system rather than a system of programs. We don’t teach lessons, we teach kids. Schools should be places where students can develop self-esteem and confidence and experience a sense of security and community.
According to Bill Gates’ 3R’s, education can only be successful when is rigorous, relevant, and most of all, based on  relationships . “ Schools should be about providing a sense of hope for all not achievement for the few.”  Anon
Generates motivation to learn 9) In education, it  is the interest students have in the content being presented and/or the desire they have to do well in their studies. Motivation is the desire and drive required for any kind of successful performance.
A teacher with 35+ years of experience said the following about student motivation: “ The question is how do we get their minds? How do we reach their minds to help them become the people that they don’t even know they want to become? As a teacher I need, not just their bodies present, but also their minds as well.”
Commits to never-ending  renewal 10) Schools that are committed to a never-ending renewal process:  ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
