Daniel Pink DRiVE-1

With so much talk and money thrown at school reform, we should heed the advice in Daniel Pink’s best selling book ,”Drive, the Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us.” According to Pink, “The secret to high performance and satisfaction—at work, at school, and at home—is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.” Think for a moment about what that means for teachers, for site principals, and for students.
