1 World-Class Education What exactly does that MEAN? how can it be measured? Dottie Barbeau Heidi Shepard School District of Clayton January 13, 2012

2 Our journey to defining World Class Education 2009 mathematics curriculum review Our primary research question: What is the best mathematics curriculum design and program today, determined from a world class perspective?

3 Standards and AccountabilityHuman Capital & Collective Capacity Structure and Organization Globally benchmarked standardsRecruit great people & train them well Effective, enabling, central departments and agencies Good, transparent data & accountability Continuous improvement of pedagogical skills and knowledge Capacity to manage change and engage communities at every level Every child is on the agenda. Always in order to challenge inequality. Great leadership at the school levelOperational responsibility and budgets significantly devolved to the school level The Building Blocks of World-Class Education (Barber, 2010, Excellence in Education Summit)

4 Poor to FairFair to GoodGood to GreatSustaining Great Achieving the basics of literacy and numeracy Getting the foundations in place Shaping the professional Improving through peers and innovation The journey to “world class” performance: According to Barber (2010), the journey to “world-class” performance has four steps as shown. The key is to hold to accountability, but give educational leaders and teachers space to make decisions and innovate.

5 Lessons Learned We started by looking at scores and academic measures to determine if our students are globally competitive. We ended up realizing that in order to be world class, it takes a lot more than that. Our students need to be globally competent.

9 Steps along the journey Cargo Cult Alert Research – bigger than national organizations Student achievement data – international benchmarking – First in the World Consortium Schools – Minnesota & Massachusetts, Scarsdale NY – School District of Clayton – ACT is aligning the PLAN to the PISA Curriculum – what does the curriculum look like, not the textbook, but the structure of the curriculum – three legged stool (Dr. Chen) – internationally benchmarked standards

10 Standards and AccountabilityHuman Capital & Collective Capacity Structure and Organization Globally benchmarked standardsRecruit great people & train them well Effective, enabling, central departments and agencies Good, transparent data & accountability Continuous improvement of pedagogical skills and knowledge Capacity to manage change and engage communities at every level Every child is on the agenda. Always in order to challenge inequality. Great leadership at the school levelOperational responsibility and budgets significantly devolved to the school level Discrepancy between subgroups – 5% or less Things to consider: High Quality PD: Collaboration, Common assessments, PLCs, Lesson Study, Lab Classrooms What are the Habits of Mind? Mathematical Practices CCSS
