This session explores district innovation and perseverance in one of four research study districts working to solve rural, high poverty problems. Our case study reveals how education innovation is not about starting a program; it’s about creating a pivot point that fundamentally shifts mindsets to transform teaching and learning. We will also examine the connection between educational attainment and economic development.
