Expanded learning time

Expanded Learning Time logoExpanding learning time for students, especially those in low-income neighborhoods and districts, has emerged as a major strategy for school improvement in cities across the country. On this page, Catalyst Chicago will compile stories from a multi-city reporting project by Catalyst and its four sister news outlets: Chalkbeat Colorado (formerly EdNews Colorado), EdSource Today, Chalkbeat New York (formerly Gotham Schools) and the Philadelphia Public School Notebook. The collaborative effort was made possible by a grant from the Ford Foundation, which has made More and Better Learning Time a priority in its philanthropy.
