More on Littky

Google has helped me find some more articles about the Met School and Dennis Littky and the Big Picture Company and Elliot Washor, some of which I blogged previously.
Here are some more:
One student at a time: a deeply personalized Public High School

Standards and Variation - standards as opposed to standardization, a paper by Elliot Washor and Charles Mojkowski

Personalized Learning: Preparing HS students to create their futures, by Elliot Washor

Integrating Youth Development on Behalf of Vulnerable Youth: (PDF file) here's an excerpt that caught my eye - College retention represents another significant leakage point in the pipeline.... Of those students who enroll in college, only about 50% actually complete a bachelor's degree within 6 years... Colleges are struggling with the dual challenges of remediation and retention as increasing numbers of students arrive on campus under-prepared.
