Putting The Motive In Motivation: Roger Pollard

This week, on The Parents' Solution, I talked with Roger Pollard. Roger is a public high school teacher, head football coach, a collegiate athlete, and an author! The two of us talked quite a bit about what sorts of problems the public and private school have as institutions. We focused mainly on talking about systems, and how the systems themselves do not serve the majority of children and students. Typically, it's not because of the individuals within the system, but the rules and structure of the system itself. The concept of building the creative mind, playing the game of school, and developing the right mindset was a large portion of our conversation - we really connected when talking about the experience of learning and the value of skills and skill development, over the idea of learning rote knowledge for the sake of it.

"I'm not telling you you're gonna like it. You won't. But there is a consequence to ease, and that is the unwillingness to fight and grow...it's not the end result...we need to be more process-based rather than product-based."


Roger and I also talked about the value of a trade, and how our economy was run, at the core, by tradespeople. That nothing would happen without them, and that the one-size-fits-all approach of public (and to some extent private) school was, in various ways, simplifying the population overall. He had some really great solutions for this sort of problem, and some suggestions for ways to approach your children in the best sorts of ways - ways in which you can protect and provide, but more importantly, uplift and inspire.
