“You see schools where the ‘good’ kids are compliant, the ‘bad’ kids  are defiant, and nobody is engaged.”

That’s a quote from the Daniel Pink video I posted about earlier today. He gives a nice review (from the 79 minute mark to the 81st minute) about the difference between learning and performance goals, which I’ve previously posted about and used in lesson plan you can find in my book.

At the 86th minute, he also makes a nice comment about the fact that schools and other institutions have a “poverty of metrics” in relation to standardized tests.
