A Broader, Bolder Approach to Education
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v74 n2 p4-5 Oct 2008
The Broader, Bolder Approach to Education Task Force is made up of 62 national policy experts, with diverse political affiliations, who come from fields that include education, social welfare, health, housing, and civil rights. This article presents a shortened version of the Task Force's recently released statement on the Broader, Bolder Approach that can realistically boost disadvantaged students' achievement. While continuing to press for school improvement, their proposed Broader, Bolder Approach also promotes high quality early-childhood programs and preschool, afterschool, and summer opportunities. Along with improving test scores, it also emphasizes physical health, character, social development, and nonacademic skills. It prizes traits needed for effective citizenship, creativity, and the ability to work in diverse environments. The four pillars of the Broader, Bolder Approach are also discussed.
