I have been doing research on bridging the achivement gap. One of the things
I had found out is that under or poor achieving students often feel bored by
the work they are given, that the curriculum is boring and that the
expectations are low. Some students even receiving coloring book type homework at the
high school level!!!
Raising the bar definately makes a difference. You are saying...we know you
can do it!!
