The Three Strands of Ford Next Generation Learning
Ford Next Generation Learning mobilizes educators, employers, and community leaders to prepare a new generation of young people who will graduate from high school college-, career-, and life-ready—an emerging workforce prepared to compete successfully in the 21st century economy.
Students are at the center of everything we do. The changes we support in schools and their communities will help achieve the larger goal that all young adults will graduate from high school equipped with the essential knowledge and skills needed for success in post secondary learning and future careers, and for active citizenship. Our commitment is to prepare the future scientists, inventors, public servants, and entrepreneurs who will apply their passions and expertise to improving the world for their generation and those to come.
To achieve this goal requires the combination of the three strands that comprise the Ford Next Generation Learning initiatives: Transforming Teaching and Learning, Transforming the High Schools Experience, and Transforming Business and Civic Engagement.
