Providence’s K-8 model

Filed under: State-wide,Student Performance,Unions — Editor @ 9:13 am

It appears the Mayor of Providence has been reading the same research I have. 

“…the City is about to embark on a plan to transform
Providence schools into 21st-century learning environments, with recommendations imminent for a district-wide facilities plan that features K through 8th grade neighborhood schools and smaller, more personalized high schools.”

Also in this press release:

Further, the Mayor also stressed the need for a new student-centered union contract and practices that support student achievement.”

I don’t always agree with the Mayor, but he has my support on these changes.
