Personalized education can solve most of the instructional issues occurring in North American schools. Many of the programs suggested in Personalized Instruction: Key to Student Achievement have been operating successfully in school environments for over thirty years. All students could be successful if educators would commit themselves and their schools to personalized education as outlined in this book. -- Robert E. Lowery Ed.D., retired teacher, principal, and superintendent in Alberta, Canada, and former associate professor of educational administration Nobody knows the relationship between instructional personalization and achievement better than Jim Keefe and Jack Jenkins. They not only talk the talk but have walked the walk. This is about as sound advice as one can get these days. -- Fenwick English, R. Wendell Eaves senior distinguished professor of educational leadership, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill When the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows SD#42, B.C., Canada, designed the self-paced/continuous progress program and facility for the Thomas Haney Secondary School, the administrative team incorporated in their planning the personalized instruction and student support components advocated by James Keefe and John Jenkins. The practical and experienced knowledge provided by these educators prepared us to accomplish our goals and especially to overcome obstacles that we might have overlooked. -- Albert Pasqualotto, retired assistant superintendent of schools, Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows, B.C., Canada Many components of this personalized instructional approach (student learning style assessment, advisement, goal setting, flexible scheduling, formative assessment, variable instruction, etc.) have shown great potential to increase achievement in the present NCLB environment. If we are truly interested in 'No Child Left Behind,' we need to revisit the personalized model. -- Timothy L. Schaap, president, GAINS Education Group, Schaumburg, IL Eminently realistic and practical. There's no substitute for common sense. -- George O'Brien, chair, English Department Mount St. Mary's College
