Practice Makes Perfect - NOT! Excellence Is a Habit

 
9781434901927: Practice Makes Perfect - NOT! Excellence Is a Habit

Has our nation given up on striving for excellence? Are we happy just to get the job done? Practice Makes Perfect-Not! challenges us to look at ourselves and our educational system with an eye to the future. This theory could change the way students are taught.

Practice does not make perfect; practice makes permanent. If what we are practicing is flawed, it will be reflected in the outcome; therefore, from an early age, we must teach our children proper study practices, a strong value system, and a work ethic geared toward excellence. Parents and teachers must partner with the student to provide these tools, ensuring the best possible result.
