MassBudget and the Rennie Center'sRoadmap to Expanding Opportunity project examines specific strategies that have a clear track record of helping students learn and develop into productive members of their communities.
These strategies include: smaller class sizes; early education; support for new teachers; wraparound services; additional learning time; community based learning opportunities; multiple pathways to graduation; and dual enrollment in college courses during high school. When implemented successfully, these strategies can ensure that students receive both the highest quality education possible inside the classroom and additional supports they need to succeed at school and in life.
The infographic shows the supports that, if done right, can help at different ages. For an interactive version with links to research on how each strategy can make a real difference, clickhere.
