Correlation is not Causation

Every education leader should print this statement, “Correlation is not Causation,” and hang it where they can see it every day. You can’t imagine the number of leaders who place their entire organization at risk by blindly chasing coincidence.

In education, Causation is difficult (if not to impossible) to determine.  Which means that no matter how sure you are that something is going to work, you must constantly measure, monitor, reflect and adjust.  Otherwise, at some point Correlation is going to sandbag you.

Think. Work. Achieve.
