  •  Instruction includes individualized centers with manipulatives that address a wide range of children’s skills and abilities.
  •  Assessments should measure the curriculum and guide the instruction.
  •  When parents are involved in their child’s education and the school decision-makingprocess, the students, parents, and teachers all benefit.
