All Children Can Learn: The Challenges of Remedial Education. A Position Paper.
New York State School Boards Association, Albany.
To meet the challenge of effective instructional support, districts should develop and implement policies governing remedial education that are tailored to the needs of students and the resources of their local communities. An overview of state and federal remedial education programs is provided. Varying combinations of factors within and outside the school environment shape student academic performance. Eligibility for existing remedial instruction programs should be based on careful assessment of a broad range of student skills and abilities. A number of instructional support models can be implemented to increase student academic gain: (1) pullout model; (2) in-class model; (3) supplementary programs; (4) replacement programs; (5) summer programs; (6) early intervention and family-centered learning; and (7) accelerated school. A summary of recommendations prefaces the booklet, and a sample remedial instruction policy statement is appended. (45 references) (SI)
