Ed Reform Should Focus on "Whole Child, Whole School, Whole City"

Remember that awesome bus tour we told you about last March – the one where A+ NYC painted an old school bus blue and went around to each New York City borough to get input from community members about what would make their schools great? Yep, that one.

Well, four months later, here's the culmination of that bus tour! "Whole Child, Whole School, Whole City: An Education Roadmap for the Next Mayor" is an engaging report illustrating the ideas that parents, students, educators, and community members want the next NYC mayor to consider to support their schools and help every kid succeed. 

You should really go read the entire report (available here), but here are a few of the pieces you don't want to miss:
