DOE’s Recipe for Fixing Schools Lies in Partnerships Between Them

(DNAINFO) Amy Zimmer | October 20, 2015 — As science teacher Deborah Schaeffer led a lesson on climate change on a recent Thursday afternoon, not only were her students at East Brooklyn Community High School paying close attention but so were a team of other educators in the room.

Schaeffer is a model teacher. Literally.

As part of the city’s Learning Partners program, Schaeffer opens her room to educators from other schools, which is why her climate lesson included observers from her own school along with people from Williamsburg’s Green School, Carnarsie’s Brooklyn Bridge Academy and Brownsville’s Brooklyn Democracy Academy.
