Reports about education are often full of findings and abstract solutions but lack the depth, stories, and sharing of learning that can nurture an understanding of how transformational change unfolds in different communities. Rather than linking across efforts, too often reports elevate a single best approach from the lens of one, rather than multiple, perspectives.
Each issue of IDEA’s Learning Reports shares the stories, connections, and learning from the educational change work happening across IDEA and the networks with which we are engaged.
The broad educational change community is invited to add to the documentation for future reports through online “story journals," and content is also gathered from online engagement and in person, phone, and electronic conversations.
The first audience of learning reports are the people engaged with IDEA with the hope that our learning is also useful for individuals, communities, organizations, and policy-makers around the United States and Puerto Rico working to advance meaningful learning to build a more just and sustainable society.
