Taking care of children by feeding them, protecting them, and loving them is not the same as preparing them for their future. American education has been through an evolutionary process; which is just a few centuries old and the quest is yet to be fulfilled. We forget, a century ago, attending school past age 12 was not mandatory, the classrooms were often filled with 50-60 kids of varying ages and demanding kids to recite and regurgitate facts was a standard practice. Forecasting the needs of tomorrow continues to be an enigma in spite of the rapidly evolving information technology age and serving the needs of all types of learners continues to be as opaque as ever. This episode, my guest, Dr. Sam Goldstein, a clinical neuropsychologist, will discuss how to rethink educating self-sufficient students with Executive Function at the heart of learning.
