Questioning the Data

George Couros, Connected Principals, Feb 25, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

"There are a few things that I question when I hear schools talk about solely 'data driven'," writes George Couros. "Nothing works for everyone. Nothing.  So when we look at “proven methods”, we are often looking at something that is more focused on the “system” than an individual." Also, "there are often so many things that are going on in school, how can we really compartmentalize the 'one thing' that works?" Finally, he asks, "what is the measure of success?" Education is a complex system designed for individual needs and to serve multiple objectives. Of course no single model can describe it, let alone determine how it should operate.
