Results

The Research: Researched by more than 30 institutions, for more than 3 decades, Success for All’s programs have been proven to increase student achievement; cut the gap between African-American, Hispanic, and white students; and prepare teachers to support the needs of English learners.

Why It Matters:  Every child deserves a high quality education, to ensure success later in life.  Educators cannot leave this to chance, or fads in education, and have a responsibility to use what works.  Their students’ future success is depending on it.
