Building essential skills today for the future

New Hampshire offers innovative, successful approaches in competency-based and deeper learning practices, and is a model for other states to follow. That’s why JFF, a national nonprofit, is partnering with the NH Learning Initiative, the NH Department of Education, and the Center for Innovation in Education to understand how work-study practices are being adopted and scaled across the state. We are seeking to understand how certain professional development opportunities impact teachers’ and students’ experiences as they learn to develop, use and assess work-study practices in classrooms.
