Midvale, Utah (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
School Improvement Network CEO and President Chet Linton spoke Friday on MSNBC’s “The Cycle” about creating partnerships in the public and private sectors to improve America’s education system.
“For us, it’s all about increasing student achievement and making sure every student is college and career ready,” Linton said, explaining how School Improvement Network’s for profit status allows it to reinvest in innovations in a way states and districts can’t.
With this status, School Improvement Network acts as a “strategic partner” to bring schools and educators the personalized resources they need to become more effective teachers and better prepare students, Linton said, all at “a few hundred dollars per teacher instead of a few thousand.”
And research shows the method works.
“We see reading scores double in schools that use our resources,” he said. “We see math scores triple. These are against district averages, so I think that is probably one of the best determiners.”
