“What does a successful 24 year old look like?” This is a critical question that must be successfully addressed if Kansas is to “Lead the World in the Success of EACH Student.”
For many decades we have attempted to fit the student in to the system and many students have been successful, however, many have not. What would happen if the system were built around the individual student? What would happen if student’s interests, passions and talents were controlling when determining the best educational plan for each student?
By developing Individual Plans of Study based on student interests, abilities and passions and by developing plans based on what is important to each student we expect to not only improve the graduation statistics but also, and more importantly, engage each student so that they have a much better chance of leading a fulfilling life as well as being one of those successful 24 year olds and continuing that success throughout their lives.
