Recognizing the challenge that nonprofit and public-sector leaders face in engaging the American public in meaningful education reforms, an influential group of philanthropic leaders came together to partner with the FrameWorks Institute in developing an effective new ways of talking about this critical issue
The primary communication challenge for digital media and learning proponents is to shift the focus from risks and recreational dimensions to opportunities and skills for lifelong learning.
In many ways, the case for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Education (STEM) should be a no-brainer. Unlike other subjects where Americans — in this most pragmatic of cultures — struggle to see the benefits that education reform holds for the “real world,” everyday life surrounds us with obvious STEM applications.
The goal of this project is to document patterns in public thinking about all levels of the American education system, and to explore the challenges and opportunities that confront those who would reshape the public conversation to support comprehensive reform.
Based on a decade of FrameWorks’ research and field practice on budgets and taxes and education, this toolkit provides supplemental application materials, guides, and resources to front-line communicators for deploying recommended reframe strategies to shift the public conversation about both education reform and the role of budgets and taxes.
Funded by Kansas Action for Children, the goals of this project were to improve the public’s understanding of the impact of marketing on children’s health and development, and to eliminate commercial activity in public schools
