We hope that you are able to join us for an upcoming education policy event Tuesday, October 16 in Washington, DC, sponsored by the Lexington Institute and the Catholic University of America’s Department of Education.
The event, Building 21st Century Catholic Learning Communities: Enhancing the Catholic Mission with Data, Blended Learning, and Other Best Practices From Top Charter and Independent Schools, will discuss findings of a recent Lexington report on this topic, as well as trends and developments around the country discussed by leading practitioners and experts.
As the paper discusses, the 2012-2013 school year is the first in which more American children will be enrolled in charter schools than Catholic schools — a milestone that presents a crucial opportunity for Catholic schools to innovate. This event will focus on best practices underway at some of the nation’s most innovative, and most successful, Catholic schools, and highlight new breakthroughs in blended learning across the United States, that harness technology to create powerful gains through targeting differentiated instruction.
