Up for a challenge, anyone?

here, by accident, at a Physics blog by teacher Dean Baird. I’ve bookmarked it.

Hmmm – I like this kind of a challenge!

Helping educators become more supportive of
students is critical, but doing so produces more significant
improvements in student learning when combined with high expectations
and rigorous instruction.

The challenge
now becomes how to create the conditions that allow such solutions to
flourish together and how to get them into the communities and high
schools that need them the most. High school reform is achievable. But
if reformers are to be successful, they must leave very little to
chance.
