Public Agenda is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in New York. Founded in 1975, this organization employs research, communications, and engagement strategies to elevate a diversity of voices to forge common ground and improve public dialogue among leaders and communities. There are two goals for this grant. One is to produce insights into what animates and excites teachers, parents, students, and the general public about education and learning. The other is to clarify what competencies, knowledge, and skills employers want to see in their employees. Public Agenda will publish a report and execute a webinar to communicate its findings.
