Review for Partners In School Innovation, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Teachers are the most important resource in the educational enterprise, and the staff at Partners works directly in schools with teachers. Many well-meaning people have opinions about improving education generally, but few have the focus and courage to stay in the daily work of the classroom. This highly-charged and very enterprising staff is focused, hard-working, and serious about meeting literacy development goals in some of the most challenging schools in the Bay Area. The districts they serve are better because of their work.
