An experiment in KCMO schools

From the Columbia Daily Tribune of Missouri:

Rather than promote children from one grade to the next in a group as they get a year older, Kansas City public schools is trying an eminently sensible alternative long denounced as discriminatory. Children will be grouped by ability and promoted as they master certain skills, regardless of age or theoretical grade level.

The author, Henry J. Waters III, says the experiment will be “interesting to watch.”

Indeed.
