Have you started reading the paper Quality and Equity by Design: Charting the Course for the Next Phase of Competency-Based Education? If not, or if you have and found it to be a lot to absorb (because it is), jump on the webinar Charting the Course for the Next Phase of K-12 Competency-Based Education on November 8, 2017, 2-3 PM ET with Susan Patrick, Nina Lopez, and myself. We’ll be walking you through the ideas from the National Summit on K-12 Competency-Based Education. Register here.

This is a major, major, major shift for the field. We are moving from the super fun stage of every new idea helps us move forward to how do we get this right. It’s hard to give up the first stage and buckle down and hold ourselves accountable about equity, about being honest that our super cool ideas that we’ve worked so hard on may not actually be helping students to learn as much as we want, and about stretching our imagination to forge a new set of policies.

Please join us and other education leaders for an hour to reflect, share your efforts and ideas, and think about the role you want to take in advancing competency-based education.
