IDEA Ewing Halsell Academy Wins Wesley Becker Excellent School Award



Congratulations to IDEA Ewing Halsell Academy Principal, Pamela Ray, on winning the Wesley Becker Excellent School Award from the National Institute of Direct Instruction.

The national award was presented last month in Eugene, OR by the National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). IDEA Ewing Halsell Academy was selected as a 2018 recipient from a selection of public and private schools across the country that use the Direct Instruction teaching method.

The National Institute of Direct Instruction had this to say about the prestigious award:

"This award is named after Wesley Becker, co-creator of Direct Instruction and longtime Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Oregon. This award is given to a school for exemplary implementation of Direct Instruction."

Thank you, Pamela, and all of IDEA Ewing Halsell Academy for your commitment to the excellence of our scholars.
