Clintondale High Cuts Freshman Failure Rates with Flipped Classes

In an urban school outside Detroit, more than half of freshmen failed English in fall 2009. Along with failing classes, freshmen students got in trouble. A lot. That semester, principals at Clintondale High School dealt with 736 discipline cases for 165 students. A year later, the scene changed. Of 165 freshmen, only 19 percent failed English. Math classes saw similar results, going from 44 to 13 percent. And both science and social studies failure rates dropped too. As failure rates plummeted, so did discipline cases. Principals only had to deal with 249 cases for 140 students.
