Delivering on the Promise
Public schools do not create the four-to-six year learning gap among their students. Yet, they must significantly narrow it to assure that 95% of students read and do math at state minimum standards by 2013. The Kennewick model shows how to assure annual growth in K-12 for all students, catch-up growth for those who are behind, and increased cognitive growth for children ages birth to five.
"Kennewick is showing us that it is, indeed, possible to successfully 'reinvent' American public education so that all children can succeed. This book is an invaluable 'how-to' guide."
Tony Wagner, PhD, Harvard University
"Research shows that children enter kindergarten with as wide a range as five years in their literacy-related skills. Some come with skills more typical of three-year olds. Others function at the level of typical eight-year olds. This book shares proven K-3 strategies to help achieve the necessary catch-up growth as well as describes how schools can support parents to minimize and reduce the achievemt gap in the first place."

Praise for Delivering on the Promise
This book describes a plan that can be implemented in any town, school, or district that refused to allow one child to be permanently disabled because he or she cannot read. American Fidelity will work to provide leadership and coordination of efforts with any educators who want to network to bring encouragement and success to deliver on the promise of achieving the 90% reading goal!

A "hands on" "no excuses" "here's how to get the job done" road map of teaching all students to read. A must read for all K-12 education leaders.
Anne Loring, Former School Board Director

Creating catch-up growth is tough to do. Delivering on the promise suggests down-to-earth, powerful, and common-sense ways to achieve it. This book should be required reading for board members and administrators.
