Schools That Work

An article from "Education World", writes about how many critics of education talk about failing and struggling schools and include reasons why they can't be successful. Education writer, Karin Chenoweth, set out to find schools that are doing well despite challenges of educating poor and bilingual students with limited resources and funding.

During two years of research, Chenoweth identified 15 schools representing a mixture of grade levels in urban, rural, and suburban settings. These schools showed remarkable success and the students were not spending endless hours on reading and math drills. These effective schools had high expectations for everyone including the principals, parents, students, teachers, and community partners. These schools are profiled in her book, "It's Being Done: Academic Success In Unexpected Schools".

We must all strive to have effective school in our community. It is possible because there are effective schools all over this country in every state, county, town, and urban area. We must find the successful schools and programs that are most like our schools and duplicate their efforts. Therefore, every child in this country and around the world could receive the "Best Education Possible".
