So what can be done?
The system must be transformed to meet future needs of students. With a new model that places the “learner” at the center of all strategy and action, CAPSS has developed a set of action-oriented recommendations that will address the complex problems we face today, transform learning, and ensure that Connecticut’s children receive the best possible education.
We’ve organized our Next Ed: Next Steps report around major themes in transformation. Although larger themes are separate, all are interconnected. Accordingly, we visit these ideas in multiple sections of the document. Our discussion of the proposed transformation begins on page 5 with “Start With Early Childhood” and continues through ten additional areas.
