Conventional wisdom might be keeping you in a rut.
That’s what befell officials at the Everett Public Schools in Washington state. School officials assumed that students failing in one course were failing in all of them. That is, until they actually looked at the students.
What they found was a bunch of “one-F” students struggling in only one course. These kids had simply hit a wall. And some weren’t struggling at all; they’d checked out because the work was too easy.
Bottom line: Take a good look at an employee you think is failing. Is only one thing tripping him up? If so, train him, retrain him, reassign that duty or rebalance the load.
