Did you catch Alan's post about the Adams 50 school district in Denver?  In an attempt to improve its students' performance, the district is dropping grade levels as part of an innovative approach to restructuring its curriculum.

Fayetteville Public Schools are looking at building a stronger curriculum for the 21st century as part of Project 21c.  To that end, the district is considering a number of imaginative approaches to teaching.

Earlier this month, the district held three community reads to discuss The Global Achievement Gap by Dr. Tony Wagner.  Dr. Wagner himself addressed the community in an event last night at the Fayetteville Town Center.

Did you attend one of the community reads or last night's event?  Have you read Dr. Wagner's book?  Have you visited the Project 21c pages?  If so, let us hear from you in the comments below.  Whether you have comments regarding any of the events, the book, a different book you'd like to recommend--whatever--let your voice be heard.
