New York, NY—The Children’s Aid Society today announced that it has placed among the top 25 applicants nationally in round four of Investing in Innovation (i3), a U.S. Department of Education competition to expand programs that help improve student achievement. A five-year, approximately $2.75 million grant will allow Children’s Aid to bring its Parent Leadership Institute, launched in 2008 in the low-income, immigrant-rich community of Washington Heights, to six Children’s Aid partnership schools in the South Bronx.
Following on the heels of the 2013 NCCS Practicum, Bloomberg EDU will explore the community schools model and how it can help close the opportunity gap.
The first of two 15-minute segments will feature a conversation between host Jane Williams and our practicum keynote speaker, Robert Putnam, who is Peter and Isabel Malkin Professor of Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School, and best-selling author of “Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American.”
