Making Ordinary People Winners

“The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate ‘apparently ordinary’ people to unusual effort. The tough problem is not in identifying winners: it is in making winners out of ordinary people. That, after all, is the overwhelming purpose of education. Yet historically, in most of the periods emphasizing excellence education has reverted to selecting winners rather than creating them."
(K. Patricia Cross, scholar of educational research)
