Nellie Mae Education Foundation, vocal supporter of integrating skills and knowledge, grants CCR

It is with great pleasure that we announce a supportive funding grant from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation (NMEF) in support of the CCR. Nicholas Donohue, President and CEO, stated in his letter of support: “…producing clearer, more appropriate renditions of educational outcomes is central to steering educational systems…”.

The NMEF is a vocal supporter of integrating skills and knowledge: “Through student-centered approaches, learners are actively engaged in authentic tasks that develop both a solid base of knowledge in traditional subject areas and “new basic” skills – problem solving, critical thinking and communication. Learning opportunities can be tailored to the learner’s needs and interests.”
