Learning 2025: This local alliance brings families, community orgs and innovative school districts together

A recent Pittsburgh Business Times article gave parents in our region an in-depth look at the work of schools in the Western Pennsylvania AASA Learning 2025 Alliance.

“When it comes to learning, you could say some kids in Western Pennsylvania have never had it better,” wrote the Business Times’ Daniel Bates. “And you’d be right, thanks to a dedicated alliance of 34 local school districts working to explore new, life-changing learning experiences for children. Together, these programs have put a national spotlight on the Pittsburgh region as a model of successful public-private education partnership -— one that leans heavily on the collective efforts of educators, parents, neighborhood groups and businesses.”
