Document Summary

Specific debate: tracking - putting students in different classes/groups/tracks based on their academic performance. Separation of students by ability and curriculum. Taking some students who are perceived and labeled as higher performers and providing them with different education with more rigorous and challenging work, faster pace. Also, pacing students in different curricular tracks based on future goals and career aspirations, not necessarily ability (college track, vocational track) Helps kids in fast track maintain interest and enjoyment in classes because they aren"t having to stop and slow down to keep pace with other kids. Kids in slow track may have a negative self image. May believe that they will never be able to perform better because they just aren"t a smart kid . Also helps fast track kids reach full potential instead of just meeting a standard. Creates social isolation - kids in different tracks don"t integrate.
