Spotlight On: Community Schools Turn Heads

Marty Blank, President of the Institute for Educational Leadership and Director of the Coalition for Community Schools, suggests the implications for the recent spate of news coverage on community schools in his editorial, Better Together: Community Schools Turn Heads.
He writes, "Community schools represent a return to that sense of working together for the common good, a return to the problem solving character of our democracy where people and organizations bust out of their silos and find ways to work collectively." To read the full editorial click here.

Research & Resources


 
The Coalition for Community Schools believes that strong communities require strong schools and strong schools require strong communities. We envision a future in which schools are centers of thriving communities where everyone belongs, works together, and succeeds. The Coalition advances opportunities for the success of children, families and communities by promoting the development of more, and more effective, community schools. The Coalition for Community Schools is housed at the Institute for Educational Leadership in Washington, DC.
