FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Cleveland Region of Facing History and Ourselves Launches Northeast Ohio Schools Network
Building on 40 years of experience, the Cleveland branch of the international education nonprofit Facing History History and Ourselves has partnered with ten schools -- public, private, and parochial -- across Northeast Ohio. The joint partnership, known as the Northeast Ohio (NEO) Schools Network aims to transform school culture and climate through curriculum development, school-wide programming, and whole-staff engagement. The result is schools that are more respectful, reflective, and participatory. These are conditions necessary for deep learning so students can gain critical thinking skills, empathy, civic responsibility, and the belief that they can make a difference.
