An insightful analysis of what is wrong with traditional schooling and what needs to be done about it. Dr. Glasser gives a compelling rationale for the use of learning-teams in schools to capture the excitement and commitment students display in sports and other extracurricular activities but rarely in the classroom.

EXCERPTS

“Once a teacher begins to consider abandoning the worker role altogether, she will want to learn what she can do as a manger which goes far beyond the traditional concept of direct, reward and punish. For example, unlike traditional managers, who spend little time worrying about whether the working conditions are satisfying, modern managers spend a lot of time structuring and restructuring the workplace to make it more satisfying because they believe that satisfied workers are much more productive.”— William Glasser, M.D.
