The Future of Education #4:
Alternative Education and Innovative Schools in New York
Queens Paideia School is an independent K-12 school that implements widely accepted tenets of educational theory. Through a 6:1 student-teacher ratio, the school provides students with individualized learning plans that are continuously updated, and focused attention on students’ personal development. The school was founded in 2009 by a group of educators and parents who shared the concern that traditional large classrooms, with their high student-teacher ratios and limited methodology, cannot accommodate the needs or consider the true potential of most children.
Innovate NYC Schools is the iZone's initiative to discover and expand educational technologies with high potential for transforming classrooms toward more personalized, student-centered models. Innovate NYC Schools identifies key learning challenges, prototypes and evaluates the impact of innovations on all aspects of student, school, and district performance, and then actively shares findings with educators and technology developers. Funded in part by the US Department of Education's Investing in Innovation (i3) program, Innovate NYC Schools helps districts benefit from best practices of the early-stage edtech community and drives smarter investments in educational technology by schools, districts, funders and solution developers. Innovate NYC Schools also oversees School of One.
Citizen Schools is dedicated to helping all children discover and achieve their dreams. We mobilize a team to enable public middle schools in low-income communities to provide a longer learning day rich with opportunities. Our deep partnerships with schools put young adults on track to succeedby connecting the resources of communities, companies, governments, and philanthropies.
