Best practices

What are the “best practices” of successful schools? The Just for the Kids report looks at schools with good results and finds: rigorous course content, high expectations for all students, access to top teachers for average students, teacher collaboration, differentiating instruction within a single classroom and use of data from multiple assessments.

Educators in virtually every state gave examples of how their focus on data had altered curriculum and instruction in their schools.

What once were considered “interventions” for struggling students “are now integral fibers of the primary structures and strategies in every classroom for every student.”
