Karen Pittman & Linda Darling-Hammond on Whole-Child Learning Opportunities

The Forum for Youth Investment’s Karen Pittman and the Learning Policy Institute’s Linda Darling-Hammond co-wrote an analysis for The 74 Million, “Surveys Find Parents Want Bold Changes in Schools — With More Learning Inside and Outside the Classroom.” In the piece, they couple new survey data from Readiness Projects co-strategist Learning Heroes with findings from Beacons Research that collectively indicate that  parents believe in the “whole child, whole community” approach to education, and want new ways for schools & communities to come together to support young people.

On the Learning Policy Institute’s website, Pittman, Darling-Hammond and Jennifer Peck of Partnership for Children & Youth wrote on “Better, Broader Learning: California Education Policymakers Prioritize Bolder Expanded Learning Opportunities.” The blog explores California’s plan and investments to ensure learning that encompasses the entire learning and development ecosystem, not just what happens inside school walls.
