What do successful schools look like? There is no one answer.
Each successful school reflects the makeup and character of its community, and each addresses the needs of its students in its own way. But in The Elements of Success: 10 Million Speak on Schools That Work, the education community has—for the first time—pooled their research and resources to outline what successful schools have in common.
In this compendium, the Learning First Alliance—made up of 12 education associations that represent more than 10 million educators, parents and local policymakers—identifies six elements present in all successful schools. Members of the Alliance agree that these are the factors needed for a school to perform at a high level and help all students succeed, while understanding the importance of a school’s context in how they are achieved. The solution to improving our nation’s schools will not come from the federal level—it will come from empowering local educators and communities to develop programs that meet their specific goals and challenges.
Join LFA for the release of this important work, which will feature a panel discussion with representatives of different segments of the education community—including teachers, school counselors, school board members and others—on why this information matters and how it can be used.
