I came across the TEDx Philly talk the other day delivered by my friend Chris Lehman, Principal of the Science Leadership Academy, in Philadelphia, PA. If you don’t know Chris, I highly recommend to connect with him! He is a passionate High School Principal dedicated to making high school relevant, inquiry-based, and dare I say fun. Having visited SLA, I can attest that it is the real deal. High School students are not bored, not in rows and not “processed.” These kids are powerful, inquisitive, and problem-solvers. They are proud of SLA and so is Chris!
Check out his TEDx Talk on why High School Stinks, and more importantly, what he is doing to make it less-stinky:) More importantly, ask yourself this question… what are you going to do to make your classroom, school, or district less stinky?
