Turnaround for Children Provides Guidance on America Forward Policy Roadmap

Turnaround for Children provided guidance on a report by America Forward titled, Whole-Learner Education: A Policy Roadmap to Student Success.

Developed in partnership with members of the America Forward Coalition, the roadmap presents a framework on how policymakers can prioritize innovative and equitable whole-learner approaches to education that cater to the needs of all students.

The roadmap references findings from two papers from the Science of Learning and Development Alliance, co-written by Turnaround Founder and Senior Science Advisor, Pamela Cantor, M.D: Malleability, Plasticity, and Individuality: How Children Learn and Develop in Context and Drivers of Human Development: How Relationships and Context Shape Learning and Development.

Turnaround President and CEO, Brigid Ahern, and Chief of Staff and Vice President of Strategy and Operations, Nora Gomperts, were also acknowledged for their guidance in the development of the roadmap.

The report is part of America Forward’s, Advancing Whole-Learner Education initiative.
