“The steps we passed through during this project with the hands-on scientific approach to gather information and analyze our theories opened the minds of our team members to change the status quo. The work and experiences we have had will result in changes at our school at the fundamental level.”

“TrueSchool approaches professional learning differently. Instead of a presenter talking at people, the solution is coming from the talented professionals in the room. This model is not only engaging for the adult learner, but it benefits the profession. Moreover, I believe it creates a better solution as educators are expert problem solvers and people on the ground level know the work closest.”

”In continued conversations, TrueSchool brought great ideas to the table. They also welcomed and offered collaboration and feedback throughout the entire process, quickly adapting to Chicago’s context. The Fund’s team is lean and we work with many external stakeholders in Chicago. The TrueSchool team brought the capacity, professionalism and attention to detail that The Fund needed to manage a large-scale, highly-visible program.”

”It is very empowering to know that one has the ability to contribute ideas and to influence the direction of our school. I am not sure every teacher has the chance to experience this kind of involvement. We are lucky to have a principal, teacher collaborative culture, and a partnership with your organization that has given us the chance to make a real difference.”
