Kallio, Julie M. – Journal of Learning Spaces, 2018
The redesign of the physical spaces of classrooms and schools has become a prominent feature in many K-12, personalized learning schools, though it is often dismissed as a peripheral aspect of change.

This report intends to begin correcting that imbalance by connecting the dots between rural regions, rural education,…

Stohr, Alison; Fontana, Jason; Lapp, David – Research for Action, 2018
Research shows that exposure to teachers of color has a positive impact on students of all races, and particularly on students of color.
