Summary Education for all is a collection of articles that traces the evolution over a quarter-century of a powerful idea: that given well-developed, rigorously evaluated methods and materials, teachers can succeed with virtually all children. Chapters on cooperative learning, Success for All, and Roots and Wings show a progression of research and development of powerful models of instruction. Reviews of research on ability grouping, the nongraded primary school, and mastery learning examine alternatives to traditional ways of responding to student diversity. An introductory chapter puts Slavin's research in context and presents a theory of school and classroom organization that draws from this research. A final and new chapter describes changes in policy and practice needed to replace the faddism of current innovation with solid progress toward school and classroom strategies in which all children can and do learn to their full potential
