Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 9, 2005
The Millennium Group (http://www.the-m-group.com) announced today the release of an article titled 'A Quantum Leap in Urban Education', outlining the process Dr. Irving Hamer, Executive Vice President Millennium Group, followed to deliver a 20% increase in student's grades over a 12 months period and across the spectrum of economic and educational deprivation.
The Millennium Group provides school districts across the country, proven, cost-effective education technology solutions that transform classrooms into hubs of rigorous learning where children can - and do - succeed.
Dr. Hamer is personally responsible for creating and leading the School Improvement Zone, an Education Technology program challenged to improve the grades of more than 44,000 students in 19 elementary schools in K-8 centers and 11 middle / high schools.
Recruited by Dr. Rudy Crew, Superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and formerly Chancellor of the New York City school system, Hamer details how a "black Yankee" moved to the South to transform student achievement in the face of skepticism from politicians and Board of Education members. Further complicating the situation, more than 500 teachers requested transfers when they learned of the effort.
Dr. Irving Hamer of The Millennium Group delivered remarkable results, helping 15 schools to improve one letter grade in only a year.
The Millennium Group is now applying this proven methodology to help the most vulnerable student populations across the nation.
