New Education Fellows Working to Engage Students and Families in School

Jenna Schuette Talbot

Every year, elite fellowship program Echoing Green selects a class of leaders who are tackling some of the biggest global challenges in and beyond education- clean energy in India, basic electricity in East Africa, and decreasing our reliance on agri-business by normalizing the consumption of insects as a source of protein.

Whiteboard's Co-Director of research Erica Price Burns served as a judge for the education fellowship this year.

Announced this week, the new class reflects much of the exciting work we're seeing in education today: Schools working with companies on industry-focused, project-based learning.„ Tools to support better teacher, parent, and student communication.„ Afterschool entrepreneurship programs for students in low-income areas.„

Previous Echoing Green fellows in education include the founders of Qlovi, Springboard Collaborative, Strive for College, Generation Schools, Soliya, Jumpstart, Building Educated Leaders for Life, and Teach for America. „Congrats to this year's class!„
