Addressing achievement gaps with psychological interventions
By David Yeager, Gregory Walton, and Geoffrey L. Cohen. Carnegie Fellow and assistant professor of developmental psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, David Yeager, co-authored this piece in the February 2013 issue of Kappan magazine. David works with Community College Pathways (CCP) Managing Director Jane Muhich to specifically address the problem of student motivation, tenacity, and skills for success in the Pathways. The article, written with two other researchers, delves into the use of psychological interventions to close achievement gaps.

Getting Ideas into Action: Building Networked Improvement Communities in Education
In this Carnegie essay by Anthony Bryk, Louis Gomez and Alicia Grunow, the authors argue that the social organization of the research enterprise is badly broken and a very different alternative is needed. They instead support a science of improvement research and introduce the idea of a networked improvement community that creates the purposeful collective action needed to solve complex educational problems. The essay builds off an earlier essay by Bryk and Gomez, “Ruminations on Reinventing an R&D Capacity for Educational Improvement," prepared for a 2007 American Enterprise Institute Conference.

Make Math a Gateway, Not a Gatekeeper
Carnegie President Tony Bryk and Senior Partner Uri Treisman write in The Chronicle of Higher Education: Math should be a gateway, not a gatekeeper, to a successful college education. Students must come to see math as an essential aspect of their everyday lives, no matter what their field of study. They need to think, "I can understand this, I can do this, this is important to know."

Uri Treisman photo thumbnail
A presentation to the 2009 ECS National Forum on Education Policy by Uri Treisman, executive director, Charles A. Dana Center and Carnegie senior partner.
Mathematics has been a burial ground for the aspirations of myriad students seeking upward mobility through higher education. What are the strategies states and large urban districts are using to create mathematics pathways that work for students who only a decade ago would not have taken high school algebra and geometry? We'll examine new course offerings and how they are scaled as well as promising approaches to modernizing high school and freshman college mathematics.
