From the American Enterprise Institute:
Mooresville, NC is probably not a household name among those outside of the education reform world. But it should be. What was once an underachieving district with a staggering racial achievement gap and poor graduation rates has been extraordinarily transformed. In just a few years, Superintendent Mark Edwards closed the achievement gap and his district now has the top graduation rate for African American students in the state of North Carolina. And he has used education technology to achieve success.
But you can’t just plop a laptop in front of a student and expect a miracle. The Mooresville miracle can be repeated — so long as we learn the right lessons.
