Achieving Breakthroughs in Education By Transforming
Effective But Expensive Approaches to be Affordable at Scale
Robert E. Slavin
It's summer in Baltimore. The temperatures are beastly, the humidity worse. I grew up in Washington, DC, which has the same weather. We had no air conditioning, so summers could be torture. No one could sleep, so we all walked around like zombies, yearning for fall. Today, however, summers in Baltimore are completely bearable. The reason, of course, is air conditioning. The story of air conditioning resembles that of much other technology. What happens is that a solution is devised for a very important problem. Innovations in education can work in a similar way.
