Pearson Gives $3 Million to New Leaders for New Schools

The Pearson Foundation has awarded $3 million to New Leaders for New Schools to help the New York City-based group continue its work in training and developing urban school leaders.

Part of the funding, spread over three years, will be used to develop a cadre of 15 educators, to be called Pearson Fellows. These fellows will be deployed to high schools in the New York City, Baltimore, and District of Columbia school systems.

The fellows are part of New Leaders' increased efforts to focus on developing leaders for high schools, which have been the most difficult for districts to reform.

NLNS officials said the Pearson Fellows will start serving in their residencies over the summer at the organization's Summer Foundations program and then will be placed in their schools in fall 2010, along with the rest of the New Leaders for New Schools cohort.
