The Brenda Scott Academy of Theater Arts in Detroit is experimenting with their classrooms to see if they can give their children a better education than what they are getting now. The school is in a low-income area. They have also been flagged as one of the lowest performing schools in their area. They have an extended school calendar that is lasting until August 7th because they need to try and get the kids up to speed with their peers.

In February they decided that they were going to combine three of their kindergarten classrooms and teach 100 children together in the same room. They break them down into smaller groups depending on their abilities so that they are learning with other children who are at the same speed that they are. It seems like this would not work well as there are only three teachers in this one room of 100 children but amazingly somehow the teachers are able to spend more time individually with each of the students.
