Communities of Practice

speaker talking at event

Communities of Practice

EdRedesign works collaboratively across sectors with community leaders such as mayors, superintendents, leaders of health and human service agencies, and leaders of out-of-school time organizations to support the wellbeing and education of children and youth in their communities.

We are committed to not only talking about the equity work that needs doing, but to supporting and learning from those doing it.

No one has yet built a 21st century engine of education and child development that delivers supports and opportunities to all at scale. While we have some design principles and theories about what needs to happen, the real work takes place in communities where there are leaders who share this vision. We aim to learn from the work in a handful of communities where top leadership has embraced our vision and expressed a willingness to expend political and financial capital in an effort to figure out how to get it done.
