"Even though I believe we have a good program in Ti and make good use of CFES, we're always looking for ways to improve," Tubbs said. "I think this study will be valuable in helping us assess the things we do."
Steve Boyce, CFES program director for Ti schools, agreed. "I think it (the final report) will give us an opportunity to see what other schools are doing with CFES and how that may apply to Ticonderoga," Boyce said. "The CFES is a program that gets activities into the hands of kids as quickly as any I've ever worked with. It's a good program."
CFES is just one program in a multi-case study on college preparation. The Michigan research team is also looking at other, similar programs across the country.
