Robin Hood Heroes
I attended the always-inspirational annual Robin Hood Heroes Breakfast yesterday, during which two of my heroes spoke: David Levin was honored on behalf of Zearn (www.zearn.org) and Robin Hood board member Marion Wright Edelman spoke – see pics below:
PS—Here's a brief description of Zearn:
Zearn is a non-profit digital learning organization that instills the academic skills, love of learning, and confidence students need to be successful in college and career. Zearn is led by some of the nation's most successful teachers and education entrepreneurs, including the founders of KIPP, Uncommon Schools, and the Relay Graduate School of Education. We aspire to support millions of students, parents, and teachers through fun, interactive, and rigorous digital lessons that can be used to personalize instruction in class or at home. Zearn currently is developing K-8 math content and eventually will include all core subjects.
