1. What are your 3 R's for education reform, and why do they matter?

In Minnesota, we’re focused on these three “R’s” -- rigor, relevance and results.  Too many of our students today are engaged in academic loitering.   In too many cases, our students are bored, checked-out, coasting, not even vaguely aware of their post-high school plans, if they have any, and they are just marking time.  It’s costing us a lot of money and it’s costing them their future.  This is a silent crisis and has the potential to devastate our future prosperity if we don’t fix it.


 Question 2. What is Q Comp and how does it work?
