EDUCATION is for AUTONOMY.

ONLY with AUTONOMY can students learn IN THE ZONE for each.

That's why I support the Lead out method

I have been involved in the development of people who have developed problems with alcohol and drugs for many years. It is clear to me, as it is to many professionals, that human potential can be developed at any age, and certainly in the ages that children and teens attend school. The idea of developing the ability of students to use autonomy to learn to their own ability makes sense. That a production method is used in schools today, that does not make any sense. I want to see this development of people, even young people, happen in schools.

Craig Souza, HP

I'm convinced that there has to be a better way to develop the human potential of students than the current education system that remains stuck in the same "production method" that we had in the early 1900's. Robert Caveney and schoolio's approach has the potential to fix the school system because it does what a human system needs to do, bring out the evolving best of each student and make the organization as a whole work fulfill the purpose of...bringing out the evolving best of each student to grow, develop and learn a great deal in the process. That’s what school can do if it uses the effective Lead out method that schoolio proposes. In the world of business, including at HP where I work, we are continually innovating to find new and better ways to engage the full creative potential of each and every member of our teams. Our children deserve no less.

I have a degree in Education, and used to teach elementary school. It became frustrating to teach in oversized classrooms with little support and a rigid curriculum that didn't meet the needs of all students. I love the training that the Lead out method offers teachers. Educating students with psychology is long over due, and I believe it will help students make and meet individual goals and in turn become more successful as students, and as adults.

I love that students will be taught how to use their autonomy at an early age.

Amy Bencomo, College Advisor, public high school

As we prepare students for their post-secondary adventures, autonomy is essential. The Lead out method perfectly aligns with all transition goals.

Anne Perschel, Psychologist, Germane Coaching & Consulting

We need educational systems that 1) activate children's natural curiosity; 2) tap their insatiable desire to learn and 3) guide them to be autonomous self-directed collaborative learners.

Kathy Schmidt, Founder, The Dream Circle Collective

Change in our education system is long overdue. Teachers are doing their best but unfortunately they are stuck in a system that was created a century ago and does not meet the needs of our kids today. Students are all different and we need to recognize this.

Robert L Weinberg, Principal, Weinberg Consulting

I endorse the Lead out method as a better approach than "one size fits all" methods.

Sharon Cyrus-Savary, M.S.E.D, LMHC, PhDc.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Clinician and a director of mental health programs in New York and California. Currently working at YAI with schools, government agencies and community organizations throughout the State of CA to address gaps in services for children, teens and adults with intellectual disability and co-occurring mental health challenges.I have seen amazing progress using tried and true techniques grounded in knowledge of psychology, neuropsychology and childhood development.

While Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome is prevalent, Post Traumatic Growth describes the positive change occurring in a child, teen or adult after they experience a highly stressful event. Growth through adversity leads to maturity! There is opportunity to grow meeting students where they are. When students are less stressed, they are more capable to help each other learn. Educators are freed from a 1-size-fits-all schedule to developing student' ability to learn in their own zone.

The reason I support the Lead out method is that it brings effective practices and knowledge right into school, to develop the human potential of everyone in school, from students to educators to principals and everyone on the school staff.

I endorse the Lead out method and encourage others to do so as well.

I would not have succeeded in the public education system without a few key teachers understanding my unique needs and going above and beyond to customize a curriculum that challenged me rather than forced me into the 1 size fits all method. My experience was the exception, however. I fully support this new approach to learning that honors autonomy and results in students learning to lead themselves.

And neither does a 1-size-fits-all method work in school. The Lead out method is better.
