Introducing: What We’re Learning

Program Officers and staff at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have their ear to the ground listening and learning from the educators and experts who drive student success in this country. Every day, I hear stories about their visits to an impressive school, get an email forwarded with a link to a fascinating new report, or learn about their ideas for how to continue to support our partners, and ultimately, help improve outcomes for the students, in particular Black, Latino and low-income students.

With that in mind, today we’re launching a new feature called What We’re Learning. In this series, we’ll highlight what we’re seeing and how that impacts our strategy. These posts will live here on our website, and we’ll link to them on social media. You can follow us on Twitter at @GatesUS and @BobHughesK12.

We also want to hear from you! Reach out to us on social media or email us at K12education@gatesfoundation.org and share what you’re learning. We might feature your post on our website.
