GSRs Needed for Exciting Education ProjectFall 2014 GSRs-- Now accepting applications
The Warren Institute is currently seeking students to assist in an important education policy project. For Each and Every Child (EEC): EEC is continuing the work of the National Commission on Equity and Excellence. Its broad mission is to further that Commission’s consensus policy principles and strategy, and to support policy change aligned with that substantive strategy. EEC’s work in the near term will focus on three programs: (1) dissemination and recruiting allies; (2) building a network of resource-rich, network of hubs defined by either geography (e.g., California) or issue (Common Core implementation); and (3) technical assistance, especially to design detailed policy changes. The Position: This year, EEC will be undertaking a project focused on Deeper Learning initiatives in education with an equity perspective. The goals of this initiative will be (1) a consensus view on whether and how Deeper Learning and equity concerns are interrelated or aligned, and (2) how Deeper Learning can be implemented in a way that supports the goals of the equity movement. Students will be involved in assembling research, writing support documents, assisting in the planning and execution of two, day-long roundtable meetings, and the writing of consensus-driven documents. We are looking for a commitment of 8-10 hours per week for the spring semester. For more information about EEC, please go to foreachandeverychild.org.
