The Learner First
The Learner First™ catalyzes and empowers school districts and educationsystems to create deep, systemic change that dramatically acceleratesoutcomes for the learners who need it most.
The Learner First™ is NOT professional development for schools, its a systemic process that helps schools and districts look at the whole system. The Learner First uses four key assumption shatterers to help change both thinking and practice throughout the school district:
- The only morally defensible target is 100% success.
- Equal treatment leads to inequitable outcomes.
- Parents are by far the best experts of their own children, and we need their expertise to get this right.
- By focusing on the small number of the most vulnerable students, we can create deep system-wide shifts that benefit everyone.
What can we expect to achieve in the first year and beyond?
