As mentioned in previous posts, our team was incredible inspired and informed at the Q Ideas conference in Washington DC last month. Here are a few statistics we learned about our youth in America that fall below the poverty line.
We feel encouraged by a non-profit called Matchbook Learning. Matchbook believes that the key to effective learning lies in effective teaching. Widely published research shows that a student receiving a highly effective teacher 4 years in a row will completely eliminate the achievement gap.
Matchbook Learning brings together the very best in public school turnaround expertise with the very best in hybrid and learning expertise. They bring this experience to target school turnarounds with a customized hybrid model that blends face to face and virtual instruction. The beauty is Matchbook Learning specifically targets the country’s highest poverty and need schools.
