Opportunity in Hard Times: Building Out-of-School Time Learning Systems that Last. Report on The Wallace Foundation Conference on Out-of-School Time Learning Washington, D.C.--February 2-4, 2009
Mendels, Pamela
Wallace Foundation
A number of U.S. cities, including five supported by Wallace, have been building new systems of high-quality out-of-school time programming citywide. But what should supporters do to ensure that these young systems endure, during the immediate economic crisis and for the long term? This report on a recent Wallace-sponsored conference that gathered 108 OST system coordinators, funders, researchers and others offers possible answers to that challenge, including: forging closer ties to schools, using new data systems to inform budget decisions, and making the recession an opportunity to introduce bold changes. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
