Thank you for that link - I read the article last night(?) after discovering it through NextDraft's daily email.

A *Fascinating* look at the powerful value of teaching writing.

Speaking of writing education...

"For years, nothing seemed capable of turning around New Dorp High School's dismal performance-not firing bad teachers, not flashy education technology, not after-school programs. So, faced with closure, the school's principal went all-in on a very specific curriculum reform, placing an overwhelming focus on teaching the basics of analytic writing, every day, in virtually every class. What followed was an extraordinary blossoming of student potential, across nearly every subject-one that has made New Dorp a model for educational reform."
