A truly wonderful concept that has done little, if anything, to improve academic skills since its introduction in 1991.

I just wonder how long it will take before we realize that programs such as this are not capable of meeting the needs of students from lower socioeconomic families where academics are not frequently stressed and supported by their families.

Earth Partnership, a nationally recognized model for teacher professional development, is a utopian ideal that further burdens educators while providing students from the highest socioeconomic families with an advantage.
