When Students Aren't As Prepared As They Look On Paper
from The Chronicle of Higher Education
College freshmen are rarely referred to as 13th graders. And with good reason: The transition from high school to college is a lot more complicated than advancing from one grade to the next. That's been on my mind since reading this article about the Success Academy Charter School network in The New Yorker. The article, by Rebecca Mead, focuses on the network's highly regimented educational environment, and describes its leaders wrestling with how well this model serves students once they get to college, where they will "have to flourish without constant supervision."
