Rethinking Middle School: NYT

I’m not a big fan of the New York Times, but they have been doing a short series on how middle school needs to be changed and new fundamental approach should be sought. Look at this article from over the weekend. It’s interesting reading.

I’ve been saying all along that the whole middle school concept needs a serious fix. As you know, GCS is slowly moving towards exclusively K-8 schools and if it is done right and well-supported, I endorse this concept. Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools is moving toward this concept as well. It is something to watch with great interest. See past K-8 blog coverage here.

E.C. 🙂
