2 Schools are Improving School Improvement

3 Schools are Improving School Improvement Changing World

4 The primary aim of education is not to enable students to do well in school, but to help them do well in the lives they lead outside of school.

5 Making a better 20 th Century School is not the answer.

6 We are getting better at things that do not matter as much anymore.

7 Unless we unlearn some of our traditional practices, we will never get beyond an improvement mindset.

8 Systems are challenged today like never before. The key challenge that we face is results.

9 In an environment driven by results, the best strategy is to DEVELOP YOUR PEOPLE. Broaden the definition of learning in your system to include adults.

12 The focus must be on the way we work. –Cooperation is what was valued in the past. It is about efficiency: You do this and I will do that. –Collaboration is where we should focus. It is about shared creation, in which the focus is not on the process but on the specific results.

13 WE need to become the AGENTS of change.
