"Too often schools will offer remediation and slower paced courses to struggling students resulting in a wider curriculum and achievement gap. Think of acceleration as inclusive. Think of acceleration rather than remediation. A different mindset but one that can transform a school district." The authors of Opening The Comon Core, Carol Burris and Delia Garrity, hope to help teachers understand how to "implement the Common Core Standards thoughtfully, always keeping equitable practices in mind." Theybelieve that we "must do everything we can to give students the support they need for success so that they can master a challenging curriculum. That is what true equity is all about. The solution cannot be watering-down the education for our highest achievers." Here is the link to the Ed Week article, and here is the link to the book's page.
