    I like the super-small, focused, local model that you propose here.

    I think we should start down this road by proposing to do this for the last two years of high school.

    Once we show that it can be done--and done well--then we can look to expand the model.

    Education? Teaching? NCLB? Read my book _Becoming Mr. Henry_

    •  something in common w/Sizer's approach (0+ / 0-)

      where he wrote about having a basic core that could be achieved by say the equivalent of 10th grade and then allowing a flexible period in which students would demonstrate mastery before they moved on?

      Those who can, do. Those who can do more, TEACH!
