Funding for Turnaround, NYC to help expand their reach

Irvin Stern Foundation recently committed funding to support Turnaround For Children, New York City, as part of the Foundation’s support for alternative and entrepreneurial education initiatives and educational reform. Turnaround helps transform the worst performing early-education schools by creating a safe, calm, positive environment. Working with local school administrators, the Turnaround Approach is to “parachute in” an instructional support team and a student intervention team to deal with severe behavioral and mental health needs. Turnaround is currently in 24 schools serving almost 10,000 students and, this school year, will launch three¬† programs in Washington D.C., and the entire district of Orange, New Jersey.
