“What if the goal of our education system were No Child Held Back instead of No Child Left Behind? What if we focused on helping all children reach their maximum potential instead of just reducing failure rates?”
Brooklyn NY (PRWEB) September 18, 2011
NaMaYa Inc. today announced the launch of a new consortium uniting education system stakeholders in the effort to transform our education systems to meet the demands of the globally competitive 21st century.
The focus of the group is finding actionable solutions for transcending the limitations of the dominant No Child Left Behind paradigm to a more positive No Child Held Back framework designed to help all students achieve their maximum personal and academic potential. Students, parents, teachers, school administrators, learning experts, citizens, business leaders, education publishers, and technology providers are invited to join the conversation about how to transform our education at NoChildHeldBack.com.
The No Child Held Back framework includes:
- finding new ways to promote student-centered learning methodologies
- establishing scalable one-on-one mentoring programs
- robust professional development programs for teachers
- parent and student empowerment
- excellence in educational content
- increasing course variety
- connecting schools with communities
- smart technology support for learning initiatives
“What if the goal of our education system were No Child Held Back instead of No Child Left Behind? What if we focused on helping all children reach their maximum potential instead of just reducing failure rates?” asks Yovel Badash of NaMaYa Inc. “Our children can achieve so much more. It’s time to implement the tools and methodologies that can help them prosper in a global world.”
