Abstract

This exploration into competency-based innovation at the school, district, and state levels suggests that competency-based pathways are a re-engineering of our education system around learning—a re-engineering designed for success in which failure is no longer viable. Competency-based approaches also hold promise as districts explore new ways to expand and enrich support to students, challenging the assumption that learning takes place within the classroom.
