I am driven to help education fit each child’s needs
The opportunity gap among children in our society is growing, and part of the problem is how we assess and educate our children. University of Minnesota Morris alumnus Michael Rodriguez’s mission is to close the gap by helping schools understand how to work with diverse students, families, and communities.
After all, says Rodriguez, “not every student is the same and one size doesn't fit all.” That’s why Rodriguez is partnering with schools to enhance school programs and outcomes by promoting better understanding of achievement test information, so that data use is more accurate, efficient, and equitable.
“Let's get schools ready for kids, while we get kids ready for school.”Michael Rodriguez, University of Minnesota Morris Alumnus and Professor, University of Minnesota Twin Cities
