We are excited to share that Learning for Equity: A Network for Solutions North Carolina (LENS-NC) – a network partnership between NC-based organizations, the Oak Foundation Learning Differences Programme and MDC – is expanding and invites North Carolina organizations working at the intersection of educational equity and learning differences to apply to join the LENS-NC learning and action network.
Selected organizations will receive funding to advance their work to reduce race and income disparities in educational outcomes among students with learning differences and create learning environments where students will thrive. More significantly, selected organizations will also join a network of organizations that regularly meet to learn, address common challenges, and explore opportunities to amplify effective strategies for change at classroom, school, community, district, and state levels. Participating organizations will receive funding for a two-year grant period.
