Lessons We Can Learn from Wales

As I reflect about lessons learned from United Kingdom schools, I am reminded that standards, accountability, higher test scores, and government mandates are not limited to the educational system in the United States. Like us, our neighbors from across the pond are also responding to government mandates to close the achievement and opportunity gap for youngsters. 
 
In Wales the government has taken a three-pronged approach to tackle student achievement and poverty within schools by concentrating on literacy, numeracy, and family engagement.

Client Feedback

The Children’s Aid Society distributed feedback surveys to thousands of youth and parents in New York City. These surveys were distributed across all Children’s Aid services and sites. Surveys were provided in both English and Spanish at a fourth-grade reading level to further bolster the accessibility and comprehension of the survey by both youth and parents. Additionally, surveys were anonymous and confidential which allowed respondents to provide frank and honest feedback about the effectiveness of Children’s Aid services.

Results and Outcomes

In 2010, The Children’s Aid Society undertook Keeping the Promise, a comprehensive, agency-wide strategic initiative dedicated to realigning, re-envisioning, and strengthening our considerable expertise and resources around a continuum of client-centric and outcomes-driven services. Through Keeping the Promise, our goal is to ensure that the children in our services — from cradle through college — have the academic, social, health, and emotional supports they need to succeed in school and break free from intergenerational poverty.
