We are especially concerned for those who are at high risk of failure because of disadvantages they bring with them to school, and because of the incapacity of the school to respond adequately to those disadvantages. But we are generally concerned with all students who do not earn a high school diploma that represents a level of achievement that prepares them for productive and fulfilling lives after high school.
We cannot address all of the issues that bear on this area of policy concern. We choose to focus on several:
- Assessment and the Achievement Gap
- Teacher Education
- Disproportional Identification for Special Education
- English Language Learners
