We see too many high school faculty fall prey to fatalities that shrink progress and rob brainpower. While progressive education is hard to beat, it’s also hard to find.

Key is to shift approaches, not merely add to school day, or do more of the same and expect improvement, as Miami low-performing schools discovered. It’s time to rebuild trust and power-up innovations that enhance success for teens in a changing world.
