Last Thursday, Jessica Poiner at Thomas B. Fordham Institute published a detailed piece on the merits of mastery learning. Among other examples, she recognized two of our schools as providers of that approach. Jessica’s piece is worth a careful read so you should take a minute and go through it.
Later, we caught a range of tweets asking some good, hard questions about how mastery works. Given that Battelle’s Aimee Kennedy, was formerly the principal at Metro, we posed these questions to her.
