Advancing Deeper Learning under ESSA: Seven Priorities. Turning the Corner Post-Conference Brief. Students at the Center
Heller, Rafael; Gerwin, Carol
Jobs For the Future
This brief recommends seven ways for supporters of deeper learning to take advantage of the changing education policy landscape, as authority shifts from the federal government to states and local districts. The authors outline priorities to help the nation's high schools move from a largely inequitable system to one that prepares all students for college and careers, with the full range of academic, personal, and social skills needed for life success. The ideas grew out of "Turning the Corner: Toward a New Policy Agenda for College, Career, & Civic Readiness," a national meeting Jobs For the Future held in October 2015 that brought together over 100 influential figures from across the education world to discuss next steps for the deeper learning movement.
