In an increasingly competitive market, private-independent schools are under more pressure than ever to prove their value and relevance to their constituents. Almost all independent schools are college preparatory, as are most public schools, so preparation for the next education level is a basic expectation, not a difference-maker. Preparing students to be admitted to and succeed in college is a key responsibility and a very real and important expectation of private-independent school parents, but we can’t stop there and remain relevant. Schools have traditionally referred to life after school as “the real world.” To prepare students for their uncertain futures, schools need to better reflect “real life.”
This Webinar outlines the issues, provides a brief overview of relevant research, and offers concrete steps to take toward making school real for your students now.
- How what we’re currently doing in schools correlate with success in college and beyond.
- What to teach students when we can’t predict the future.
- How we can make school look more like “the real world.”
- How to involve our faculty in this shift.
