New Education

olved in the Academy Model to invest in our students. But Fuentes stresses that it benefits business as well. “We want kids that are ready to move into the workforce. And we want to know what employers need from us so that these kids can be successful in stepping out of high school and stepping into the world of work or advanced educational opportunities.""And, of course, with such partnership, we would hope that they’d let us know what they see as strengths and areas of growth for our students so that we can continue to get better at providing students what they need to be a true asset to our community."Carlsbad High School will look a bit different next year, and there will certainly be bumps in the road as they iron out the wrinkles. But this massive undertaking is a huge step forward in a dedicated effort to meet the educational needs of tomorrow's leaders. Mr. Fuentes and the team at CHS will need our support, and probably a bit of patience, to get this ambitious project off the launchpad.The principal of CHS is proud of the new face of education at his school, and is ready to be its head cheerleader. "If there’sone thing I can say about the Academies," he concludes, "it's that I’m hopingit really does bring that connectedness to the student and really helps them understand what it is they’re wanting to choose as a career.”

Question: How is it better for the kids to have teachers who are teaching 3 different preps just to stay within an Academy pod? Example, an ELA teacher, who has since gotten out after she saw her schedule was going to be teaching 3 different ELA curriculums instead of being a master at one, knew there was no way she could effectively teach three different curriculums and grade levels. There was mass exodus of amazing teachers, especially AP, because this model is not well thought out, one of them being the best Engineering teacher in the state of NM. This is a model that *could* be done well, and give kids an associates degree before they even leave HS, but…
