The concept is simple: Schools should focus 20-to-30 percent of their resources on true innovation and “next practices.” Next practices aren’t necessarily about being better; they’re about being different. Teachers should be encouraged and empowered to experiment and try new things. Then, when some of these ideas become accepted best practices, schools should already be working toward a new set of next practices.
The overarching lesson here is that making a better 20th century school is not the solution to school reform.
Do we really need to reform schools?
Wouldn't be better off having them transform?
