Nikhil Goyal Advocates for an Education Revolution in America

Well said, Mr. Goyal. I’m also very excited to begin your book.

“What’s going to happen when we cut down on standardized tests? How are we going to hold students and teachers accountable?”

Portfolios are a GREAT way to start. It not only gives more meaningful, holistic, and accurate “data” on the growth of a student, but it sends a positive message to students, one that says,

“You are more than a number. You are more than a letter. You are capable of accomplishing so much. Your work is valuable and important.”

Take a look! It’s a short but worthwhile watch.
