The Learning Forward Foundation grant allowed Learning Forward MI to implement a quality evaluation plan. Learning Forward Michigan was able to use the data to continuously reflect and adjust their work, over three years, to increase the effectiveness of its teacher leadership program for building equitable learning outcomes.— Amy Colton, Michigan Affiliate, 2015
The Learning Forward Foundation Grant has given us an opportunity to collaborate, reflect and define a clearer path for full scale implementation of our ‘Personalized Learning’ innovation work. The team has a better idea where to go slow before we can go fast.— Juan Guitierrez, Patrick Henry School, Professional Learning Think Tank Challenge, 2017
