We are excited to announce a new partnership with the Rhode Island Department of Education and Youth In Action to launch Students Design For Education (SD4E) – a groundbreaking project that will guide 24 Rhode Island students through the design-process to create a brand new school. Once the process is completed, students will reveal one outstanding and transformational school model for implementation that RIDE Commissioner Deborah Gist fully intends to see operational in the state within 24-months of completion of the project! What we need now is a small group of change-seeking investors to help make it into a real live model.
A teacher’s effectiveness has more impact on student learning than any other factor controlled by school systems. Today’s teachers are being asked to adapt at an unaccustomed rate and implement a crush of policies and initiatives into their daily practice in practically real-time.
