For over 14 years, the Institute for Research and Reform in Education (IRRE) has partnered with schools, states, and districts to develop more personalized, engaging, and rigorous learning environments in struggling secondary schools.
"Students will reach higher and work harder when they feel known and valued as individuals. In this, they are no different from their teachers and families. Personalized learning communities can become the foundation for greater student achievement by building on this simple principle. These communities put young people and adults in a position to know each other well, hold each other responsible, and set clear and high expectations for how each of them will contribute to student success."
