Back to School: Education in our Region, Part 2
The school transfer situation at the end of this summer has created a new sense of urgency around student success. Our communities need young people and schools that succeed. But what does that mean? We’ll update the school transfer conversation. We revisit accreditation with a look at the new MSIP5–the newest assessment tool for school and student success. You’ve also probably heard about Common Core, the new set of curriculum standards being introduced in schools nationwide. Educators across the country are debating its’ merit, and in this episode, the topic made for some lively discussion.
Just because you have a set of standards, does that mean that it’s going to make kids learn more?” – Barrett Taylor
