Thank you, Coach G for this great post. This blog adds an important word–enabling children to not learn. By lowering expectations, giving them extra time to turn work in, etc. etc. etc. Instead of enabling self-defeating behaviors, the Coach tells teachers (and parents?) to help students be organized, dependable, persistent, and punctual! A great read, indeed!
It actually goes along with my book–Step 8.The chapter is in Fixing Special Education–12 Steps to Transform a Broken System. I love the use of the word, enabling.
