A BREAKTHROUGH in PUBLIC SCHOOLING:

the NEW LEAD OUT METHOD

brings out the best from students, no matter their color, background or zip code.

BREAKTHROUGH IDEA

The KEY to learning JUST RIGHT for each?

EDUCATING for AUTONOMY.

EDUCATING as originally understood,

is DIFFERENT from LEARNING.

EDUCATING for AUTONOMY makes it possible for each to LEARN IN THE ZONE.

ONLY by EXERCISING AUTONOMY

can children,

born SPONGES of LEARNING

HELP EACH OTHER

continue ACTIVATING MOTIVATION

choosing CHALLENGES in the zone for each.

First, WHY DO SCHOOLS FAIL?

Despite the goodness that teachers bring daily?

It's CURIOUS.

Why DON'T CHILDREN LEARN in school, when BORN SPONGES OF LEARNING?

YOU KNOW WHY SCHOOLS FAIL.

School districts are 1-SIZE-FITS-ALL

but students are ALL DIFFERENT.

The natural results?

Learning motivation is SUPPRESSED with challenges TOO EASY or TOO DIFFICULT for TOO MANY.

Budding independence is STUNTED, independence students NEED to learn just right for each.

The PROBLEM is NOT teachers or students.
(Parents don't go to school.)

The PROBLEM is using a 1-SIZE-FITS-ALL METHOD — when students are ALL DIFFERENT

PEOPLE adopted the 1-SIZE-FITS-ALL METHOD.

PEOPLE can CHANGE THE METHOD.

Enter the LEAD OUT METHOD:

a BREAKTHROUGH in solving the RIGHT PROBLEM.

WHAT PROBLEM, if solved, would enable every student to succeed?

UNDERSTANDING the BREAKTHROUGH RIGHT PROBLEM

There is NO WAY around it. (It's OBVIOUS.)

Because students are ALL DIFFERENT,

we are going to have to GRANT students MORE AUTONOMY so they can learn just right for each.

The PROBLEM:

STUDENTS ARE NOT BORN READY FOR AUTONOMY!

Readiness for MORE AUTONOMY emerges over time,
and is AIDED with GUIDANCE.

NOTE: TECHNOLOGY CANNOT SOLVE THIS VERY HUMAN PROBLEM.

The BREAKTHROUGH solution:

The NEW LEAD OUT METHOD

EDUCATES for AUTONOMY (making it safe to GRANT more AUTONOMY),

AUTONOMY students EXERCISE

to ACTIVATE learning MOTIVATION

by HELPING each other CHOOSE CHALLENGES IN THE ZONE.

The CORE IDEA as a simple IF-AND-THEN statement:

IF we could (and we can) EDUCATE for AUTONOMY (psychology),
educate that is, from the Latin educere, to lead out the student from within,
ABLE to better ASK and HEAR the WISE PART WITHIN that we all have
and with THE SKILL OF THE WILL able to follow through on choices

AND safely grant
the freedom students need
to help each other use LEAN/AGILE techniques
to ACTIVATE learning MOTIVATION
by choosing challenges IN THE ZONE for each

THEN students CAN learn JUST RIGHT for each
EACH and EVERY day.

It makes LOGICAL SENSE.

SEE FOR YOURSELF HOW THIS NEW LEAD OUT METHOD WORKS.

COMPARE to the 1-SIZE-FITS-ALL METHOD.

1 Which is OBVIOUSLY better for OUR CHILDREN?

1 The LEAD OUT METHOD EDUCATES and EXERCISES growing AUTONOMY

EDUCATION is for AUTONOMY, coming as it does from the Latin educere, to lead out students' ability to lead themselves more autonomously (using psychology).

Students EXERCISE their ability to ask and better hear the wise part within that we all have.

Students EXERCISE the SKILL-OF-THE-WILL, discovering they can do just about anything.

As READINESS for AUTONOMY emerges over time, GUIDED with EDUCATING, it does become safe to GRANT more AUTONOMY.

The 1-size-fits-all method STUNTS AUTONOMY by preventing it's exercise.

Instead, the method gives learning challenges to students, who are ALL different, TOO EASY for some, TOO DIFFICULT for others.

It is IMPOSSIBLE to teach a student any better, who has ALREADY learned, or is UNREADY for the lesson.

2 Which is OBVIOUSLY better for OUR CHILDREN?

2 The LEAD OUT METHOD method ALLOWS educators to GRANT students more autonomy

Without autonomy, how would students learn just right for each?

How would they exercise the independence developing inside?

Granting autonomy is IN CONFLICT with a 1-size-fits-all schedule.

One can't GRANT AUTONOMY — AND — keep a 1-size-fits-all schedule.

The independence students crave, the autonomy students need, teachers do NOT have authority to grant.

There is a schedule to follow.

3 Which is OBVIOUSLY better for OUR CHILDREN?

3 The LEAD OUT METHOD ACTIVATES MOTIVATION, because students choose challenges IN THE ZONE.

Students help each other — using lean/agile techniques — choose learning challenges (from the official curriculum) not too easy, not too difficult, in one's own learning zone.

The 1-size-fits-all method SUPPRESSES MOTIVATION.

When the challenges are TOO easy, it's boring. That suppresses motivation.

When the challenges are TOO difficult, it's frustrating. That also suppresses motivation.

BREAKTHROUGH RESULTS

With the NEW LEAD OUT METHOD:

Even though there is ONLY ONE EDUCATOR and STUDENTS are ALL DIFFERENT,

students are getting MORE EDUCATED and using MORE AUTONOMY
to help each other

no matter their color, background or zip code,

LEARN more and more IN THE ZONE FOR EACH.

What about PARENTS?

PARENTS DON'T GO TO SCHOOL.

HOW MANY PARENTS know verb conjugation, paradigm shifts, algebra, trigonometry?

That's why they send their children to school.

With the LEAD OUT METHOD, parents have a new reason to send children to school:

continue the EDUCATING for AUTONOMY already happening at home.

The EDUCATING PARENTS do at HOME

Parents GUIDE and GRANT more AUTONOMY as children are ready:

• To go outside ALL BY MYSELF • To look both ways before crossing the street. • To SAFELY ride my bicycle all of the way around the block ALL BY MYSELF • To use my own judgment safely walking my little brother or sister to school

What do EXPERTS say?

WHAT EXPERTS?

Plumbers are experts.

Unlike well-meaning education"experts" who HAVE NOT DEMONSTRATED EXPERTISE by fixing schools,

plumbers CAN and DO fix one plumbing system after another.

You already KNOW MORE than "experts".

"Experts" believe education is TEACHING & LEARNING.

YOU KNOW OTHERWISE — JUST FROM THIS PAGE:

EDUCATION is for AUTONOMY, leading out the student from within.

ONLY with MORE AUTONOMY can students help each other LEARN IN THE ZONE for each.

NOW YOU KNOW

EDUCATION is for AUTONOMY.

ONLY with MORE AUTONOMY can students help each other LEARN IN THE ZONE for each.
