Take a bold stand, and bring about change. Increasing Expectations for Students with Sumant Pendharkar Transformative Principal 180 If you were a teacher in that system, you would have cheated, too.

Born in India, Sumant S. Pendharkar has lived in the United States since 1985. As a hiring manager in the computer industry for over twenty years, he noticed that many of the choices his associates had made as teenagers were catching up with them. 
An accomplished author of technical books, Sumant turned his attention to help children make effective choices that would increase their chances of success and be better prepared to face the challenges of an increasingly competitive global marketplace. With the publication of two well-received and organizationally endorsed books for teens, he became increasingly involved as a public speaker in local communities and a frequent TV and radio guest.

K12 Counts is the next chapter in his journey to provide the children of his adopted country the tools they need to make themselves successful.

www.K12Counts.org

Break the cycle of low academic outcomes permanently in a single generation

From an immigrant’s point of view, Sumant has written a series of articles to open the discussion on ways to make the youth of America become competitive players in the global marketplace. He welcomes your thoughts and comments.

Book for students: Raising Yourself: Making the Right Choices

  • Sumant’s background
  • Match a quality parent to another parent to help parents be successful.
  • Thought it was a career planning issue.
  • Should be parents’ responsibility to teach kids about career planning.
  • In the United States, kids have the freedom to make their own choices.
  • Growing up in a different country gave Sumant a different view to see issues that parents can have.
  • Go to college message is strong in the media, but not necessarily home.
  • Set the expectations for college at home.
  • Exit exam is a benchmark.
  • High School in San Jose.
  • How do we get Singaporeans to think for themselves?
  • Take a bold stand, and bring about change.
  • 2 sets of immigrants: Educated & Aware vs. Uneducated & struggling
  • Language level of both groups is the same, it is not an language issue.
  • Attitude is the issue.
  • USA is the only country in the world where there is not a sense of urgency for academic success.

Are you feeling like you are always behind at school? Do you feel like you need about 2 more hours each day to accomplish everything? Here’s how I help principals work manageable hours: Create your ideal week, so that you can leave work at work and enjoy your life!

New Episode of @TrnFrmPrincipal


Henry Gradillas, along with his co-author Jerry Jesness, has written a book that will challenge many common assumptions about public education. Henry served as the Principal of Garfield High School during the period depicted in the film “Stand and Deliver” about Jamie Escalante’s success’ and challenges. Henry is a well known Educator and Motivational Speaker.

In this book, Dr. Gradillas shares both his upbeat philosophy of education and the practical school management techniques that helped translate that philosophy into success for thousands of students over three decades. The books focuses on three areas that are key to the operation of an effective school: School Climate, instruction, and curriculum. It includes many references to the Garfield High School experience, as well as to other schools where Dr. Gradillas was principal.

  • How to adjust
  • Thebestschools.org prize
  • Kids are so involved on other things.
  • Teaching Spanish at 83!
  • Using today’s technology
  • How do you support great teachers, without other teachers wanting to cut their heads off?
  • They told me it couldn’t be done.
  • Why AP is so important?
  • Why is it so difficult to implement dual credit for high schools and colleges still?
  • Did not change one thing in the district policy, but interpreted to make it work.
  • Stamp of Approval for “Gifted” students.
  • How can we implement this in lower grades?
  • Infusing Math through everything
  • Teach it to students early enough that they would be interested in it!
  • How to deal with the difficult things as they happen:
  • Because you know you’re right!
  • I am so glad that finally the principal is doing what principals should do!
  • Give the kids the opportunity to say how their school is helping them.
  • Mandated Algebra for every high school student.
  • When you don’t give a class to a student because you don’t offer it, you start them out as adults in a negative.
  • When you’re in command, Command! Or get out!
  • How to be a transformative principal? Go into a faculty and staff meeting and say: We are working hard, and we have some problems. Give me one thing that I can do to help you and make your teaching more effective? Secondly, give me one thing that I can do in the long-term to help you be more effective? Third, give me something that will improve what your doing for next year? Then what can you do yourself to move this along.
