Reaching the Tipping Point

Chris Sturgis from CompetencyWorks has been sharing insights from her report Reaching the Tipping Point on the CompetencyWorks blog for some time, and we wanted to make sure you knew where you can find all of her work in one place.

After months of traveling throughout the New England region, touring a wide variety of learning environments, and interviewing education leaders from urban and rural areas, her report shares key insights on how states are accelerating and advocating the implementation of competency-based education. As Chris describes in her introduction, “educators turn to competency education when they realize the traditional system isn’t working for many students—and is never going to work for all students.” Leaders across the Northeast are no longer accepting the status quo.
