Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 17, 2015 11:34 AM

Every school in America needs to be a GOOD SCHOOL as defined in this article.  With the focus in too many of our poverty and struggling schools on remediation of content knowledge, we often fail to make the, places that help students step into post-school success with the thinking skills necessary to compete successfully in college and work.   There needs to be a revolution in public schools that gives all schools the vision and resources to become quality "good schools".
