Success for All Foundation
Success for All is the most extensively researched of all comprehensive reform models for Title I elementary schools. It incorporates scientifically based principles of reading, cooperative learning, professional development, tutoring, and family support. Chicago schools implementing the Success for All reading program have once again made substantial gains on the city?s Iowa Test of Basic Skills Reading Comprehension Test. Averaging gains from grades 3 to 8, the six schools that had begun Success for All by 2002 gained 7.9 percentage points in students scoring at or above national norms. Over the same period, Chicago schools in general declined by 0.2 percentage points.
