“According to data released by the U.S. Department of Education, Alabama has experienced one of the nation’s steepest increases in high school graduation rates, though the 8 point rise between 2010 and 2013 still leaves the state one point below the national average.”

Last week, 429 seniors graduated from Reynoldsburg High School. This marks a significant accomplishment for the students – the culmination of four years of hard work as they prepare for college and career. The event also marks a huge success for Reynoldsburg City Schools. This was the first graduating class of students who spent all four years of high school within one of the interest-based academies: BELL Early College Academy, Encore Academy, eSTEM Academy and Health Sciences & Human Services Academy, also  known as (HS)2.

If students are offered high-quality, rigorous learning environments that are specific to their own interests and strengths, they have a better chance of succeeding.

In a recent interview with Marc Maron, President Barack Obama​ said that effective early childhood education can help not only address the plague of racism, but change the trajectory of a child’s life economically. Unfortunately, he went on, that quality early childhood education “happens spottily … what hasn’t happened is us making a collective commitment to it.”

If we know, as many Cradle to Career Network members have found, that a qualified teacher in child development is the key, let’s find concrete ways to get more highly qualified teachers in more classrooms.

Creating sustainable improvement in student readiness for college and careers.
Introduction
A learning revolution.  That’s what KnowledgeWorks is bringing to schools all across the country. In our schools, students learn in ways that make sense to them as they prepare to thrive in a dynamic future. Suddenly, education becomes more relevant. And the possibilities for our students are endless. This learning revolution extends into communities and states, too – from parents to business leaders to governors – creating widespread, lasting change.
