Is seeking perfection in our students, our schools and ourselves a healthy model for growth?
Isaac Pollack, Principal of New Orleans’ Carver High School doesn’t think so. He leads his school on the simple belief that "it’s ok to make mistakes, just be better tomorrow than you were today."
This belief underpins a culture of constant growth in which Isaac’s role is to maximize the growth of his teachers, his teacher’s mission is to maximize the growth of the students, and the students are responsible for maximizing their own education. This “upside down pyramid” of responsibility provides a framework through which the entire school can engage in constant growth and be better tomorrow than they were today.
