"We established core beliefs for moving schools towards personalized learning, as well as a systematic set of practices to support schools in the process of 'getting from here to there'. Though identified here for personalized learning, this philosophy of core beliefs in effecting change has proven applicable for any school transformation effort."
"...in this past year we have experienced many victories in the struggle for a more just public education system. The growth of youth organizing groups signals that the new generation can be a powerful voice in the movement toward equity and excellence in the public schools."
