The recipe for student success is complex. Many students come to school with tremendous academic and non academic obstacles. Schools and school systems are searching for ways to address the growing needs of students while remaining faithful to their core mandate to educate. ConnectEd explores the challenges facing our education system and how vital community resources are making a positive difference in the lives of our students. The 11 video-podcasts feature interviews with educational and community leaders covering a variety of topics. Our first season of ConnectEd features topics ranging from new directions in educational leadership and innovative approaches to partnerships with community organizations that are changing the ways that students, parents, schools and communities work together for success. ConnectEd informs, engages and challenges our assumptions about how to educate our students for success. Visit theConnectEdshow.net for video podcasts.
