This book, Personalizing 21st Century Education: A Framework for Student Success, begins with a manifesto for change, emphasizing the significance of true personalization for every learner. Next, it describes classroom, school, and system-level performance indicators that suggest personalization is alive and well. The authors also examines the historical origins of most modern school cultures—i.e., a commitment to standardization, depersonalization, and test-driven metrics that ignore the complexity and totality of the whole child.
School and district educators and administrators will be inspired by the success stories throughout this book, which showcases schools and districts that are currently “beating the odds” and providing a truly personalized learning environment for their students.
