EXCERPTS

“He [Deming] stated, “A system of schools… should be a component in a system of education in which pupils from toddlers on up take joy in learning, free from the fear of grades and gold stars, and in which teachers take joy in their work, free from fear of ranking. It would be a system that recognizes differences between pupils and differences between teachers.” … A major flaw in our traditional educational system is that we consistently fail to “motivate” students to do useless work. Boss-managers can’t seem to learn that there is no way to motivate people to do what has no chance of satisfying their needs.” — William Glasser, M.D.
