Early next month, we’ll be announcing a large initiative led by The Learning Accelerator to tackle the mess. We’ll be advancing the adoption of innovative, gap-closing approaches that make real, durable changes to how students and teachers work together during their school days, supported by new tools. Stay tuned for more details on funding and evidence-creation opportunities for network leaders.
To close, you can’t resolve a mess by making it tidy – you have to recognize its causes and have a vision for broader change. Conversely, you can’t resolve a mess simply by visualizing a less messy future or by walking away from the mess. You’ve got to start concretely somewhere, with many hands. I’m excited to join you as we tackle the mess together.
