Chris Sturgis, CompetencyWorks Co-Founder, said, "With over 50% of New England districts planning or transitioning toward competency education, this is a story about leaders who are committed to helping every high school graduate be ready for college and careers. States and districts are creating a more personalized approach to education and a system in which learning, proficiency, pace, and progress are at its very core."
Susan Patrick, iNACOL President and CEO, said, "Rooted in equity, competency-based education systems are being developed by individuals who feel the urgency to do better—for students, teachers and communities. Goal-oriented policy and practice create the conditions to transform K-12 education to ensure all students maximize their potentials."
