Recent studies show promising results when districts play a central role in shaping coherent strategies to transform high schools and partner with support organizations to expand educational opportunities for urban and low-income students. During a February 25 webinar, the Alliance’s President Bob Wise was joined by educational leaders Michele Cahill of Carnegie Corporation of New York and Robert Hughes of New Visions for Public Schools to talk about their respective roles in the redesign of secondary education in New York City that resulted in a more than 20 percent increase in the graduation rate. The webinar focused on lessons learned from partnerships with external organizations that can help districts and states create innovative solutions to improve the outcomes of public school students, regardless of race or economic class.
