The Candidates Reply to Question #2

The second question that CQE asked was,

In many school districts, subject classes are not based on ability group until 5th grade.  In Metuchen, Reading and Math classes are grouped by ability level beginning in 3rd grade.  Please state your opinion.

CQE asked this question to hear some thoughtful discussion on an issue on which the members of the next Board of Education may be asked to give an opinion or to vote.  In recent years, there has been discussion at Board meetings and among parents about the benefits of ability grouping vs. the benefits of differentiated learning in the classroom.  As of this time, CQE does not hold a position on this issue.
