Summary

This book reframes holistic education and offers guidance to schools that aspire to being holistic.

Don Berg offers a unique large-scale perspective on the challenges of K-12 education leadership today.

He suggests that one of the most marginal segments of the industry has the most to teach those in the mainstream.

The mainstream is off-track because of understandable but mistaken ideas about learning and human nature that create a powerful illusion that misguides system-scale efforts to improve the outcomes of schooling.

Dispelling the illusion requires educators to rethink the distinction between being a teacher and an instructor.

Teaching needs to be about the creation of learning contexts while instruction is about helping students accurately grasp content.

A more careful approach to instructing children is needed.

The book presents design criteria to help schools change in the right way and a map of how school organizations can do better by both their teachers and students.
