SPUR Lunchtime Forum: Innovation in SF public schools
"San Francisco is one of only two cities to be awarded a grant from the C.S. Mott Foundation to implement the New Day for Learning report, which calls for a dramatic transformation of America’s education system. The goals include a seamless learning day and year, an emphasis on experiential learning and the use of the city as the classroom. The local Initiative is a collaboration between the Mayor’s Office, San Francisco Unified School District and the San Francisco School Alliance. With Margaret Brodkin of New Day for Learning and Milton Chen of the George Lucas Educational Foundation."
