COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO EDUCATION REFORM
It is time to think and act outside-the-box! Achieving long-term institutional reform, especially for schools in high poverty neighborhoods, will take a comprehensive approach, where schools, students, parents, and community work together.
- Improve schools through teacher professionalism
- Help students along the continuum
- Engage parents as substantive partners
- Empower communities to foster high expectations
For more details on this methodical framework, see “Education Reform’s Final Chapter,” published by Republic 3.0 and Medium – The Synapse.
NEW EDUCATION RESOURCES PROJECT
Beginning in September 2016, as school starts for millions of children across the nation, Sosne Kondé Policy Solutions, PLLC, is also embarking on a new project. We will be compiling resources that support these four components of comprehensive education reform. Resources will include recent news or policy articles, research outcomes, and successful programs. Stay tuned!
SCHOOLS — Reform schools through structural changes, administrative leadership, teacher professionalism, and curriculum advancements.
STUDENTS – Focus on individual students’ needs and assist them along the continuum from birth to college, including early education, tutoring, counseling, and after-school activities.
FAMILIES – Engage parents, provide skills to support their children’s learning, and empower them to partner with teachers.
