"Foundations for Young Adult Success: A Developmental Framework"
A report from the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research seeks to distill reams of research and insights from practitioners to help identify the cognitive and noncognitive traits students need to succeed in life, and to give schools and community groups a developmentally sensitive road map for nurturing them in children.
The report seeks to show how those ideas fit together into sort of an ecosystem with the aim of helping educators and policymakers design and implement smart practices.
It was funded through a competitive-grant process by the Wallace Foundation, which also helps to support Education Week's coverage of leadership, expanded learning time, and arts education.
