This week, Linked Learning Alliance’s President and CEO Anne Stanton was featured in The 74 Million, where she wrote alongside the Lumina Foundation’s Chauncy Lennon that K-12 and higher education systems must work together to support young people as they transition to postsecondary education. We also share articles on the importance of civic education, a new handbook on social-emotional learning from the US Department of Education, and more.
Students are seeking clarity, guidance & relevance at both the high school and college levels. Our education system owes them all three, and it needs to deliver them acting as a united force writes Lumina Foundation's Chauncy Lennon and Linked Learning Alliance's Anne Stanton.
Join the Linked Learning Alliance, Partnership for Children and Youth, and California education leaders on Wednesday, November 3, 3:00-4:00pm PDT for a discussion on practical ways to implement effective summer learning, how to leverage dollars to scale these programs, and how these experiences ensure high school students are seen, engaged, and connected to their purpose.
