Leveraging Funds to Maximize Student Outcomes Workshop
Schooling is a profoundly human process, where much of what matters are the interactions between the school staff and the students – something we call the “school effect”. Leveraging the school effect for productivity means enlisting schools in the spending decisions. In this interactive workshop Dr. Marguerite Roza will work with principals and other interested education leaders to understand and embrace financial decisions and trade offs at the school level in order to promote greater outcomes for kids.
