People Will Meet Your Expectations
So be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
Story of self-fulfilling prophecy from England when a computer mixed up the “bright” and “dumb” kids. The teachers taught according to the report and when admin found the error, they retested them. Results found that the actual group of “bright” kids had gone down significantly and the actual group of “dumb” kids had increased. The bright kids labeled dumb created the paradigm for the teachers to teach them and they were treated as mentally limited, uncooperative, and difficult to teach. The dumb kids labeled as bright had created a paradigm shift for the teachers-they said they knew the kids were smart, so if the kids weren’t learning it must be their teaching and they should try different methods.
Quote from Goethe-Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.
