Ohio – Human Restoration Project (HRP), our 501(c)3 organization dedicated to revitalizing the human-centric aspect of education, is excited to announce its collaboration with Learning InspirED, an Ohio-based hub for educators, on the "Students Leading the Way" initiative.
This transformative project, now entering its second year in conjunction with HRP, aims to reimagine the education landscape, focusing on student well-being, engagement, and empowerment. The initiative is currently being implemented across six Ohio public school districts, with a mission to bring lasting positive change to students, educators, and school communities. This initiative has substantial support through the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation.
Students Leading the Way goes beyond traditional, short-term workshops by forming enduring partnerships with school districts across Ohio. These partnerships facilitate ongoing change within schools, encompassing shifts in structures, processes, and practices that lead to more meaningful and fulfilling educational experiences. Through our students-first philosophy, all districts will partner with HRP for multiple focus groups throughout the year – focusing on students’ goals, aspirations, dreams, and ways to improve school. These will directly form how we address reimagining what school could be. Learning InspirED will conduct surveys, meet with administrators and educators, and build structures for implementing changes that target student autonomy and relationship-building.
Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the urgency of addressing student well-being, mental health, and engagement has never been clearer. Key aspects of the initiative include:
The initiative aligns with six core priorities, placing autonomy and deeper learning at the forefront:
More information will be released throughout the year. We look forward to continuing to create an impact in public education throughout the United States (and around the world). Let’s restore humanity, together.
