Students Need Challenge, Not Easy Success.
Clifford, Margaret M.
Educational Leadership, v48 n1 p22-26 Sep 1990
School abandonment is a systemic failure that affects poor and affluent students alike and threatens our country's well-being. Such "educational suicide" is primarily a motivational problem. It is time for educators to replace coercive, constraint-laden techniques with autonomy-supportive techniques and to supplant error-proof lessons with risk-taking opportunities. Includes 19 references. (MLH)
