educators continue to use educationapproaches which are technically wrong in spite of the
results they aren’t able to achieve. This is compared to
competitor nations who use technically sound approachesand teach their kids much more effectively as is shown by theinternational testing. The approach in our education systemis to try to do the wrong thing better when they should stopdoing the wrong things and start doing the right things.
in education political correctness andgroup think run amok. This creates a workplace whereconstructive feedback (that is, you are not getting the rightresults, shape up or ship out) simply does not occur. Kidsand our increasingly uncompetitive society globally continueto pay the price.
Job’s created an environment of mental
toughness where robust dialog was encouraged as a way toperfect the quality of the work teams. The educationenvironment is one of people walking on eggshells becauseconflict is not allowed and thus creates a bunch of wimps.
in education passion is not allowed because itmight lead to conflicts. Conflict is required if you want toreally perform well. It results in much better decisions. Oh,
people “say” they are passionate about things but it is all a
charade. If passion for doing the education mission in anexcellent way were ever allowed to break through the
educations fiefdom’s fortress walls it would have a
remarkably positive impact.Therefore, we must conclude that there are good reasons why Steve Jobs and Apple were successful and equally valid reasons
