Can anyone explain the graph showing an very slight increase in "global rating"? What is the significance?

Also I have highly enjoyed reading this series of articles. I am a high school teacher hoping to get out of a stagnant status quo and be progressive. I'm looking for inspiration and direction, not just the next fad.

The BYU Idaho story should be a Harvard Business School case study.

And, the foundation for totally rethinking how education takes place in this country, including K-12.

Bravo to everyone concerned with this amazing change!

Re: "The Socratic method may work well with very bright and motivated law students . . . ."

So many elitist assumptions, so little time [and space].

Let me just say it sounds like an educators' trade union speaking. Not an actual living, breathing, thinking, aspiring person.

Patriot,

If the only reason kids go there is to get married, I want my money back! I have 30+ kid who went there for 2 years and is not married and a 27+ kid who went there for 5 years and is not married. Both now have great jobs. My kid who went there for 2 years transferred to BYU and felt the teachers at BYU-I were great and loved his experience there.

I've been following the Pathway program for a couple years now and have lost hope that they will ever offer it nearby.
