a PhD in educational psychology from UC Berkeley and is a career and personal coach In the most recent international comparison of school achievement among the 34 OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries the US ranked 17th in reading 20th in science and 27th in math behind such countries as Portugal Italy and Spain (Shanghai China ranked 1st) The results are virtually unchanged from previous years And our top students are doing particularly poorly For example in math only 2% of US students scored a 6 (the highest) compared with 31% in Shanghai China The US is moving toward mediocrity in a world that requires anything but And it’s not for lack of spending The US ranks #1 in the world in per-student spending on education Politicians tout education as key to America’s future including closing the achievement gap But for education to fulfill the hope education may need not more tweaks but reinvention Dream-Team Teachers Imagine that every child rich and poor from Maine to San Diego would be taught by a dream team of the world’s most inspiring transformational teachers and receive totally individualized instruction It’s possible Here’s how Take for example Algebra 1 considered (falsely as I will argue later) a critical course Think back to when you took it Unless you were the exception your teacher didn’t fascinate you nor did you learn algebra in a way that you use it in your daily life But from among the nation’s thousands of algebra teachers there must be a few who are magical in their ability to get kids to understand algebra love it and make it part of their lives So imagine that the US Department of Education invited algebra teachers worldwide to submit a video of themselves teaching and picked three highly transformational teachers Each would create his or her favorite 1/3 of the course with the help of a world-class gamification/simulation expert (for example someone from Electronic Arts or LucasArts) and a techie to put it all into an interactive individualized online course The teacher would give mini-lectures followed by simulations games individualized practice and supplementary materials That online course would be available on all types of devices and platforms and to every teacher in the nation and beyond Each teacher could use it as the centerpiece of class time or decide to teach the class traditionally and use the dream-team-taught lessons as homework If dream-team instruction proves superior it could be expanded to all high school subjects and even piloted with lower grades for example third-grade science Dream Curriculum Even with dream instruction if students are taught the same things that turn off even many motivated students we’re fighting the battle to educate with one arm tied behind our back It is elitist that the school curriculum especially the new national Common Core curriculum demands all students learn arcana they won’t even need in college let alone in life–for example the intricacies of Shakespeare and the trigonometric reciprocal functions Meanwhile the curriculum does not focus on helping students graduate with far more critical skills: tools for resolving conflict without fisticuffs parenting skills or financial literacy such as smart ways to save and borrow and estimation skills for example whether a person can afford to move out of his parents’ house Do we actually graduate so many high school students without basic skills Consider this The Education Trust reported that in 2010 23% of applicants to the Army scored below the absolute minimum (31 percentile) on a basic skills test (Armed Forces Qualification Test) be considered by the military The questions are truly basic Here are samples The pool from which that 23% of low scorers came from had already been prescreened to eliminate candidates with criminal records and the intellectually disabled for example And are the Common Core standards truly that esoteric Indeed For example here is the introduction to and first example of the 8th grade math standardsstudents are required to learn all of these: In Grade 8 instructional time should focus on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance angle similarity and congruence and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem A schools superintendent and member of a major state superintendent’s cabinet who wishes to remain anonymous said “If my fellow superintendents and I were in a room and told we had to take an exam that tested whether we met the 8th grade standards there’d be a massive rush for the door” Yet we require all high schools students to learn that arcana while allowing them to graduate without basics Students especially slow learners cannot learn all we’d like Can anyone who actually cares about students assert that it’s more important that they know even those 8th-grade standards by the time they graduate from high school than the aforementioned more life-central skills First things should be first You shouldn’t teach the area of the parabola unless a student knows how to estimate the full four-year cost of college attendance At some point a student may get to the point where the esoterica is next in line but most of that would occur in college or graduate school Not only would students learn more in a first-things-first curriculum they’d be more motivated to learn because the material is obviously important For students teachers and society such a curriculum especially compared with the Common Core would indeed be a Dream Curriculum The Dream I view the above as comprising the key elements of a Dream School Such a school would fulfill students’ dreams of loving school parents’ dreams of having their children grow more than they could have imagined and society’s dream of a citizenry that’s wise employable and contributing both to their self-sufficiency and to the larger good Marty Nemko is an award-winning career coach writer speaker and public radio host specializing in career/workplace issues and

events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsStephen Colbert faced what was likely his biggest and broadest audience ever Sunday night during a broadcast that aired immediately after the Super Bowl The post-game slot has never quite had the power to reverse a show’s fortunes but it still draws in plenty of people who’ve just forgotten to change the channel after America’s most-watched annual TV broadcast One wonders what exactly an audience who’d never seen him before made of Colbert whose show was representative of The Late Show’s strengths and his weaknesses Why not assay weaknesses first After all CBS executives likely will; their booking of Colbert as the first-ever late-night host to immediately follow the Super Bowl seemed like a (pardon the metaphor) Hail Mary play to shore up Colbert whose cerebral broadcast has struggled in the ratings against Jimmy Fallon’s gleeful Tonight Show Colbert seemed stiff and uncomfortable when addressing sports He seemed to openly read fairly vague questions for Super Bowl MVP Von Miller off an index card for instance and his pre-show banter about the game focused largely on how great he felt for Peyton Manning (A taped bit on touchdown dancing with Key and Peele got better as it went along but proved that other people could handle sports stuff better than Colbert) The Super Bowl post-shows from The Simpsons in 1999 and 2005 to Glee in 2011 have often insisted on shoehorning football into their plots which seems excessive; presumably after hours of football a bit of unrelated entertainment would feel like a palate-cleanser Colbert might have been better advised not to bother trying with football at all and just put forward a program of pure entertainment Despite the pair’s seeming initial lack of chemistry the host coaxed out of Tina Fey and Margot Robbie an ultimately charming and warm interview the best-case scenario for two celebrities with a project (in this case the movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot) to promote His intro segment in which he spoke to notables including a US soldier based in Kandahar astronaut Scott Kelly and President Obama proved both his breadth of interests and his sharp curiosity about ways to do something fresh His bit with Obama in which the pair riffed on the fact that though the show was live Obama was only appearing via pre-tape was joyfully meta and just strange enough When Colbert was able to push a bit against the boundaries of his show he was fantastic as when he brought new energy to the presidential cameo or when he allowed Will Ferrell in fine form to deconstruct the talk-show animal expert role Ferrell impersonating some demented version of Jack Hanna showed off “exotic” animals like a “duck-bodied platypus” (of course actually a duck) It felt like a clip meant to go viral but one whose strength came from its knowledge of talk-show history rather than like Fallon’s karaoke bits one that seeks to exist in its own context-free world And Colbert’s interview with Megyn Kelly about her perceived “feud” with Donald Trump was satisfyingly substantial That Colbert was at his weakest when he was performing the bits of his show that were required felt like part of the price of admission for a host so good at interviewing and so knowledgeable about what makes talk shows good This was an episode of a talk show put together by someone who understands what talk shows can do Sure almost no one watching at home had been working today but at the end of an especially dull football game the show’s non-sports content was mood-lifting without giving the exhausting feeling of striving for virality What does this mean for Colbert Probably little; while the Super Bowl has cemented the ratings success of already-ascendant series like Grey’s Anatomy or The Voice it hasn’t been as good at redefining a show’s fortunes Colbert seems torn at present between two selves; the guy who wants to talk politics with Megyn Kelly and weirdly subvert the history of TV talk and the guy for whom the network arranges an interview with the Super Bowl MVP (That the Von Miller interview literally interrupted Colbert’s sharp chat with Fey and Robbie seemed almost too perfect) Colbert’s future would likely be even brighter if he could figure out a way to be or to seem excited about talking to anyone But with that out of the question giving a platform to a probing and odd intellect is something very special indeed Contact us at [email protected]” Further research is
