It’s prospective parent information day, and you make the trek to San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood. You walk up to the second floor of the school, file into a glass-walled conference room overlooking a classroom, and take a seat alongside dozens of other parents who, like you, feel that public schools—with their endless bubble-filled tests, 38-kid classrooms, and antiquated approach to learning—just aren’t cutting it. At the same time, you’re thinking: this school is kind of weird. On one side of the glass is a cheery little scene, with two teachers leading two different middle school lessons on opposite ends of the room.

Then there’s the guy who’s standing at the front of the conference room, the school’s founder. Longvowelpatternchart.pdf. Shortvowelsoundschart.pdf.

QuickSmart. Ready-made twigging resources to use in the classroom. Brightest students not being challenged. Thursday, 19 Mar 2015 19 March 2015: Too many of Australia’s most able students are coasting at school and not achieving their true potential, the Chief Executive of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) will tell an education conference starting today.

Brightest students not being challenged

Speaking ahead of his keynote address to the International Conference on Giftedness and Talent Development in Brisbane, Professor Geoff Masters AO said that year-level curriculum expectations often impose artificial ceilings on student learning. “Many students in our schools are judged to be performing well because they achieve high grades on middling expectations for children of their age,” Professor Masters said. “Rather than being stretched and extended, many very able students achieve year-level expectations with minimal effort.

File. Australia’s maths crisis.

Mathematics is in a death spiral in Australian schools. Just one in 10 students studied advanced maths in year 12 last year. Worse, and more puzzling, is a collapse in girls ­studying maths and science. A gender breakdown shows nationally just 6.6 per cent of girls sat for advanced mathematics in 2013: that’s half the rate for boys and represents a 23 per cent decline on the figure since 2004.
