Harmony CEO and Superintendent Attend Education Policy Event at White House
Harmony Public Schools joined national education policy leaders at the White House on Tuesday, November 15 for a discussion of education innovations in the US. CEO Dr. Soner Tarim and Superintendent of Schools Zekeriya Yuksel participated in Innovations in Personalized Learning: A Conversation with Leading Districts, an invitation-only discussion with national leaders on the achievements and challenges of next generation schooling.
Tarim and Yuksel joined a select group of district trailblazers leading personalized learning efforts nationwide to explore the nexus between policy and implementation for personalized learning. Harmony’s experience implementing the Race to the Top Grant initiatives provided the pair valuable data to share in the discussions.
The event was organized by the U.S. Department of Education and the White House Domestic Policy Council. The agenda for the day included a collaborative purpose to “provide an opportunity for education leaders to share how they are using personalized learning as a strategy for equity and for policymakers to understand how these districts are navigating their policy context as they implement innovative changes.”
