Yesterday, the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation published the second post in its new Personalized Learning series. In it, we hear from Margaret Angell of CityBridge Foundation, a vibrant D.C.-based nonprofit organization selected by NGLC as one of two 2013 pilot sites in its Regional Funds for Breakthrough Schools initiative. After leading a regional K-12 grant competition, CityBridge subsequently funded 18 D.C.-area schools to employ next-generation learning models. The goal? To facilitate the transformation of over 100 of the area’s highest-poverty and lowest-performing schools into high-performing schools.
Joining her is principal Scott Cartland of Wheatley Education Campus, one of the schools awarded a grant and other professional support from CityBridge.
Cheryl Niehaus, Program Officer at the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, moderates this candid discussion, which includes current plans for implementing personalized learning in the capital and advice for those interested in putting it into practice in their region.
