Meaningful Engaged Learning


One of the largest challenges facing schools and educators today is how to reach all students. Reaching every child is not a challenge simply because of federal policy. This issue transcends No Child Left Behind. The economy has changed and we need all students to learn to high standards so they can go on to college and productively join the workforce.

Schools are working hard to learn how to accomplish this.
