How significant would it be if almost every student entering the 5th grade (especially in schools with previous high failure rates)...
- had 100% mastery of all prerequisite skills & knowledge (e.g. 100% mastery of all K-4 content)
- saw themselves as primarily responsible for their own education and experienced in taking the initiative in their own learning
- recognized the value of learning and confident in their ability to learn?
"If you knew of a way that YOU believed could accomplish the above and dramatically increase the number of students at 100% grade level, nationwide, in just one year, and you did not act on it, what would that say?"
