❖ All students can learn. Achieving the intended outcomes of the educational experience is within the grasp of every student, given the time and opportunity. Schools exist to foster learning and ensure the accomplishment of such learning by all students.
❖ Earned success breeds success. Students’ success in authentic, meaningful, and challenging experiences affects their self-concept, motivation, and approach to learning. Providing students opportunities to succeed and acknowledging their accomplishments encourages students to seek further learning experiences.
❖ Schools can provide an environment that enables students to thrive. There are strategies associated with successful teaching and learning. Schools can and should create the conditions for learning so that all students may reach a high level of success.
