Report Release: Every Child A Graduate: A Framework For An Excellent Education For All Middle And High School Students
Every Child A Graduate argues that America sorely needs a cohesive, coherent national policy to help the six million middle and high school students now at serious risk of failure. These are students who have been left behind in the educational reforms of the last decade, reforms that have primarily focused on the youngest children.
On October 19, the Alliance for Excellent Education hosted the latest in its series of interactive webinars on education news in Washington, DC. This webinar focused on the crisis in adolescent literacy, as well as state and federal efforts to improve reading and comprehension skills of America’s older students. The webinar included a short presentation followed by a question and answer session driven by questions from webinar participants.
