Connecting the WHY, WHAT, and HOW of schooling

Posted By: Alan Jones on August 1, 2020
 
This article focus on the instrumental/technical aspects of implementation or problem solving paid too little attention to how leaders develop a clear sense of the why and what of learning and schooling---what I have termed in my books (see below) the authoring of an instructional worldview that connects the why, what, and how of schooling. Without a strong philosophical psychological and historical foundation, school leaders are dropped into a goal maze, implementing a mandate here, a professional development program there--but with no coherent response to the fundamental questions of schooling: how do children learn, what knowledge is of most worth, how should knowledge be organized, how should we assess what students understand, and HOW SHOULD WE TEACH. Leading faculty out of these goal mazes is less about effectively implementing the mandate of the day, and all about developing a coherent philosophical and pedagogical approach to teaching and learning.
