All Students are Succeeding

Laura wants high academic achievement in all schools, not just a few.  She will evaluate policies and practices to ensure that they are improving student outcomes and that resources are being allocated accordingly. Shifting resources to the programs or practices with the greatest evidence of effectiveness can maximize students’ chances of success. Improving student achievement, however, does not necessarily mean spending more on education. In fact, there are tremendous efficiencies to be achieved by serving students well at the outset and each step along their school career.
