The reason for this is very simple:
- Solutions are about improving success and well-being for all concerned and thus act as attractors for those involved
- Inschool because there is nowhere else that solutions can be constructed. Useful ideas and resources may come from elsewhere
The alternative is to search for what works in the here and now: a solution. Thus, despite our love of ‘problem solving’ it is usually much more productive to focus on solutions than on problems.
