Student ‘leveling’ gets a hard look in Manchester
Ryan acknowledged that the trend is controversial, but that it was especially needed in Manchester. The city has come under federal review for disparities between white students and minorities, in particular blacks and Latinos who make up a growing proportion of its student body.
Ryan gave the presentation alongside Superintendent Debra Livingston, who also expressed support for the shift away from advanced-track courses.
Ward 1 board member Sarah Ambrogi said she appreciated the goal of de-tracking, but she said the district needed to go slow and communicate with parents.
Ryan did not offer details of the plan, and he did not respond to a follow-up request from the New Hampshire Union Leader for more information.
