This book presents a comprehensive framework for moving our industrial age educational system to a system of learning for all. Originally published in 2007 as "Approaching 100% by 2014" it started as an analysis of what it might take to reach the goal set by the United State's No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. The goal was that schools and school districts that receive federal funding should be able to demonstrate, by 2014, that 100% of students meet minimum competency as measured by annual State assessments. This edition of Approaching 100% carries forward the main theme of the previous edition, but within the context of all that has changed, and is changing in the education domain.
