About this item
How do you close the achievement gap? Start by changing the question.
When we use the achievement gap to define success, we shortchange our students. It’s time to recognize that the potential for greatness lies in a unique form within each child—and that the goal of education should be to encourage and develop it. This inspiring manifesto brings in research from different disciplines and demonstrates how to uncover individual greatness by giving students control of their learning. You’ll also find:
- Strategies for implementing personalizable education
- Examples showing practices that have gone wrong—and right
- Guidance for teaching disadvantaged students
