A New Day for Learning

A New Day for Learning

A New Day for Learning (48 pages, PDF), a report from the Time, Learning and Afterschool Task Force, calls for federal, state, and local policies that support the exploration and redesign of the nation's learning system, including the structure of the traditional school day and academic year. Funded by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the report finds that access to high-quality educational opportunities is crucial to helping children succeed in an increasingly complex, global society and argues that the nation needs a learning system that redefines student success, recognizes how students learn throughout the day and year, integrates various approaches to acquiring and reinforcing knowledge, and provides new leadership and professional development opportunities.
