Renewing the Middle School: The Early Success of Middle School Education
George, Paul S.
Middle School Journal (J1), v41 n1 p4-9 Sep 2009
For the last 40 years, the author has had the privilege of being a participant/observer/reporter in middle grades education in a wide variety of circumstances, both in the United States and abroad. During this lengthy period, the author has observed and reported on what he considers to be a continuing series of accomplishments in middle grades education. Many of these endeavors seem unknown or unacknowledged by those outside the middle school movement. Even educators new to, or on the margins of, middle grades education are also unaware of these achievements. In this article, the author presents an abbreviated account of the successes that middle school educators in America and elsewhere have accomplished during this nearly half century. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
