The New Hampshire Department of Education is creating a new environment that is beckoning those who have new ideas and expertise when it comes to advancing learning practices. The following is a quote from the NHDOE regarding the Initiative for School Empowerment and Excellence:
"The State Board of Education is pleased to have the tools available to support their goals of eliminating high school dropouts; educating the whole child (physically, personally, socially, and academically); and using a growth model for educational accountability. The Follow The Child Assistance Center is part of the Department’s Initiative for School Empowerment and Excellence (i.4.see) program. The Follow The Child Assistance Center will enable schools to better understand the strengths and opportunities for growth of each child, as well as the school as a whole."
New Hampshire's encompassing approach toward education is creating a new awareness for students' minds. New Hampshire is seeking to attract those with expertise in breaking down learning barriers to help design the future of the state's efforts in education.
