Students grouped my “content level” instead of grade

“I think it challenges kids, I think it challenges teachers, and I think it keeps the classroom really interactive,” said former high school academic dean Jedediah Bila.

However, not everyone is on board.

Amber Northern, Thomas B. Fordham Institute research director, said she believes it’s a way for schools to “plump up their graduation rate” and said it threatens the integrity of the education system.
