Mainstream American education policy, from No Child Left Behind (100% proficiency was scheduled to show up on these test results) to the Common Core, isn't looking so good here: Bush's law failed utterly to achieve its objectives, the achievement gap is widening in spite of all those good-hearted efforts of Teach For America, and while it's too early to judge the Common Core, it doesn't appear a panacea, or even helpful, in these first results. America's education leaders should stop experimenting on the next generation, at least when those experiments are based purely on (business) theory, rather than established successful practices in other jurisdictions. One World School continues its mission of synthesizing these to develop the world's best school, when judged in accordance with the constraints of a model admission policy and scalable resource use; when families and philanthropists tire of wasting their time, energy, and money on both uncompetitive, old-fashioned American schooling and the failing standard model of reform, they should contact us, so that their children can enjoy brighter futures.
