Education Week reports on the difficulties that children face in their transitions from one educational level to another, or from one school to another. The story reveals that these are often "the points where children stumble." It also gives some pedagogical advice on preparation steps that could help students overcome the transition schock. The reporter quotes scholars who find that the best predictor of success in high school is achievement in 8th grade. Another important transition is considered the one from kindergarten to 1st grade.
