Closing The Achievement Gap Online
The on-line discussion cum policy initiative incubator is entitled: Achieving Success For All Students: A Statewide Initiative on Closing the Achievement Gap. Each day of the week is devoted to a different aspect of the mission, with with panelists, participants, and facilitators on-hand to stir the pot and get things rocking and rolling. I'll be a panelist for Monday's topic, Access to Learning Opportunities. Catch me early morning and early afternoon, cuz after that it's on to our second game of the year (0-3, 0-0).
I was a little underwhelmed. Too many people, too many perspectives, too little structure and organization. Moreover, too little interaction and engagement. A lot of folks (including me) posting their sound-bite chatechism perspectives in isolation of one other.
