On February 25, 2014, more than 50 funders, policy makers, educators, union leaders and community partners came together to learn about Brooklyn Generation School, visit classrooms, and talk with teachers and students. During the tour, Jonathan Spear, Chief Learning Officer of Generation Schools Network (GSN), provided a high level overview of a white paper released in February Achieving Extended Learning Time and Expanded Opportunity in K-12 Education. The paper was developed with the support of the Ford Foundation. Click below to download the white paper. Inside you will learn more about the Generation Schools Model, the benefits/ tradeoffs and the lessons learned during model implementation at Brooklyn Generation School (BGS) in Brooklyn, New York and West Generation Academy in Denver, Colorado.
