PISD joins national “innovation collaboration” project

(Continued)

PALESTINE —

Findings from the project will be reported to federal leaders and observers. Presley is hoping to accrue data that will position their efforts for a grant that would enable schools to incorporate strategies on a wider scale – such as nationally.

In September of 2013, the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities signed a memorandum of understanding, “which means they're going to collaborate on programs and funding,” Presley said, “which at the federal level, that's like an earthquake.”

“So this is really, really significant. The implications for education are phenomenal. An opportunity for Palestine to be recognized on the national level comes from these findings.”
