Letting Young People Lead Their Learning: A Conversation with Ron Berger

The Forum for Youth Investment

Close your eyes and imagine what an outstanding school looks and sounds like. What comes to mind? Young people collaborating and solving problems together? Or everyone at a desk memorizing facts for an upcoming test?

Please join the Forum for Youth Investment as the Forum’s President and CEO Karen Pittman chats with Ron Berger, Chief Academic Officer of EL Education. EL Education was founded on the premise that when students have completed their academic career and enter adult life, they’ll be judged not by performance on basic skills tests, but, rather, by the quality of their work and the quality of their character. EL Education is transforming the school experience of young people around the United States, at 152 schools in 30 states. This conversation will explore the EL model, the Character Framework, and the 10 founding principles.
