The NEA Foundation has released a new report on lessons from union-district expanded learning opportunity (ELO) collaborations. Given the relative newness of many ELO programs and activities, there is just a thin research base examining how effective ELOs are spearheaded, developed, administered and governed. The cases and analyses presented in the NEA Foundation’s newest report,Expanding Learning Opportunities to Close the Achievement Gaps: Lessons from Union-District Collaborations, provide examples of ELO programs, including afterschool and summer learning, that have been jointly designed and collaboratively operated by leaders from the school district, teachers’ union and community.
