Support High School Reform

By 2018, two-thirds of the nation’s jobs will require at least some postsecondary education. Approximately 30 percent of African American and Hispanic students do not graduate on time, if at all, and 20 percent of students who do make it to college need at least one remedial course. The fact that so many students are not prepared for college or a career is a direct consequence of inadequate education at the high school level. Despite progress over the past decade, over 1400 “dropout factories” continue to struggle. Federal and state policies need to address the misalignment between where we are and where we need to be. I support efforts to redesign the high school experience to ensure that all students graduate with the critical thinking skills and ability to apply knowledge so they can succeed in college, career, and life.

    It is 2016 and time to reform schools so they are designed to accommodate small class sizes where teachers can reach and engage all students on a regular basis without getting overwhelmed by the second month of school. Each one, reach one is so appropriate for setting real expectations for quality and effective teachers and schools.
