Review for National Urban Alliance For Effective Education Inc, Syosset, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had just become Superintendent of Schools in Indianapolis and our board and I were faced with low student achievement in many of the schools. The National Urban Alliance (NUA) partnered with us, audited each school to look at instructional issues, designed a staff development plan for the district and implemented it. Not only did they signficantly help us raise student achievement, they also worked with us to find grant opportunites to help fund the partnership. There is no question that the National Urban Alliance makes a difference for all children and proves that poverty is not destiny.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Indianapolis with Indianapolis Public Schools. They not only worked with our board, teachers and administrators, but also met with our board and the business community, the mayor and others to help them understand that together we could make a difference for all children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make this training mandatory for all teachers in all school districts. These strategies work for all kids.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I helped recruit NUA to Indianapolis and worked with them in implementing this program districtwide.
