Dana Center work in Rhode Island
continues to garner praise

Posted on December 21, 2010

Since early 2009, the Dana Center has been working intensively with the Rhode Island Department of Education and nine Rhode Island school districts to revamp the districts’ math and science curriculum. The goal of the collaboration is to better align the curriculum with the state’s standards as part of a broad strategy to improve student achievement.

Two recent press accounts praising the process and the outcomes follow.

"Teachers rewrite science curriculum in Cranston," published in the November 18, 2010 edition of the Cranston Herald, focuses on teacher satisfaction with the new curriculum.

“New curriculum makes monitoring educators, student learning results clearer,” published in the December 16 edition of The Valley Breeze reports on the progress elementary schools in Lincoln, Rhode Island have made in implementing the new uniform math and science curriculum.
