“What if there was, right now, a practical, commonsense way to reduce student failure rates in our schools and at the same time significantly mitigate the harmful effects of poverty on student academic success? There is a way; focus on changing grading, homework, and scheduling practices in our schools. In Beyond the Grade, Lynn Canady, et al. not only make a compelling, research-based case of why changing these practices is essential, they also provide practical, doable examples of ways to make this happen. Canady’s book is an essential resource for anyone interested in helping more students succeed in our nation’s classrooms.”
