Treat All Students like the "Best" Students
Bottoms, Gene
Educational Leadership, v64 n7 p30-37 Apr 2007
What would happen if schools offered all students the same challenges and opportunities that some schools now offer only their "best" students? The Southern Regional Education Board addressed that question in 1987, when it developed the High Schools That Work Model. Blending challenging college-preparatory content with modern vocational and technical studies, this model aims to increase student engagement and produce graduates who are prepared to pursue both further studies and careers. In this article, Gene Bottoms looks at schools that have fully implemented the High Schools That Work design and describes the practices that lead to high student performance in these schools.
