As rigor and global competition increase in education, so too does accountability and the need to change or transform the work that we are doing. There is a strong focus on closing the Achievement Gap, a gap that has existed for much longer than this educator has been alive. Whether we are talking about the Socio-Economic, Racial, LEP or IEP Achievement Gap, the gap still exists. In some areas of our country certain schools, both public and charter have been able to greatly reduce or diminish these gaps, but unfortunately these achievements are not common enough. Then of course their is the Global Achievement Gap which places our country, one that used to top the World's Educational list, somewhere in the middle.
What can we do or are we doing to close these gaps and transform our educational system as a whole to one where all of our students are given the chance to meet with success and be highly competitive in this global economy.
Join us Sunday night at 8 PM on #edchatri as we discuss these issues and share many of the ideas that we are using to close these gaps and transform our students' future.
