75. Where Meaningful Educational Change Begins with Jeff Ikler Time for Teachership

    • How To

On the show this week, I am talking with career and leadership coach Jeff Ikler. Jeff has worked for nearly 50 years to help students, teachers, and administrators acquire knowledge and find meaning in their work.
 
Students need more agency and to be cared about by adults at school. Educators are at their best when they recognize that the things students go through and manage in their lives have a direct effect on their desire and ability to put academic work in. 
If teachers want to shift their mindsets and start making those changes, there’s no reason it can’t be attempted at a school or district level. Not to mention, we discuss how students don’t need to be steered towards college as the only goal. What would happen if we took their needs and desires into account when it comes to them figuring out their future?
