The 2015 Education Innovation Fellows have arrived in Chicago—the second trip of the “Travel and Learn” phase of the Fellowship—and we are all eager for an inspiring and reenergizing trip. Across the next three days, we will visit innovative schools, including KIPP Create College Prep, Urban Prep Academies, and Intrinsic Schools; hear from educational innovators in the city; and continue to bond and collaborate within the Education Innovation Fellowship family. This is the Fellowship’s first time in Chicago, and we are so excited to experience the education landscape here and learn from these educators’ expertise.
After too many slices of deep-dish pizza and a day of travel, we are all excited to rest and begin what is sure to be an eye-opening and educational three days tomorrow! Stay tuned to hear about our experiences in the Windy City.
