Two Recent Webinars Highlight the Benefits of Strategic Partnerships in Education Reform

 

Two separate webinars convened the week of Nov. 15 aimed at using public, private, and nonprofit partnerships as an essential component of education reform initiatives.
Education Week held a webinar titled Powerful Partnerships: Creating Community Coalitions for District Reform. Participants learned about the 2007 ‘Say Yes to Education’ initiative that started in Syracuse, NY  thanks to an alliance between the Say Yes to Education Inc. and Syracuse University. Presenters included Syracuse City School District Superintendent Sharon L. Contreras and Say Yes to Education Inc. President Mary Anne Schmitt-Carey.
 
The Achieving Excellence and Innovation in Family, School, and Community Engagement  webinar sponsored by the Harvard Family Research Project is hosting the ninth and final installment in that series. The webinar was held Nov. 16. The webinar focused on the roles federal and local entities can have in promoting family, school, and community engagement policies and other innovations. Speakers for the webinar included Karen Mapp, director of the Education Policy and Management Program at Harvard Graduate School of Education, Kiersten Beigel with the Office of Head Start, Ruth Anne Landsverk and Betsy Prueter with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, and Karren Dunkley from The School District of Philadelphia.
