This book describes how the term "acceleration" has been applied to teaching different groups of students and explores the influence of culture, as manifested in schools, classrooms, and individuals, in helping or hindering efforts to accelerate the learning of all students.



Accelerating the Learning of All Students provides hope to all citizens and educators that the dismal history of educating low-income students can be turned around, and that all students can be provided the rich, engaging educational experience that has historically been reserved only for those identified as gifted.
