15 LA Schools Celebrate an Amazing Year

Schools are busy places this time of year. It is easy for the last few weeks to slip away without taking a moment to reflect back and celebrate the year's successes and innovations. On May 7, we brought together teachers, administrators and students from our Carson Partnership Schools Network, to take that pause to celebrate and share. Tuesday's celebration was at the GRAMMY museum and included a special performance with Charles Holt and Gerald Rivers in "Martin & Music."

Over the last three years our network has grown from 5 public high schools in the downtown area to 15 and growing. The word NETWORK is key. It is how we are creating a community. That community is also here on the LA Network BLOG. Both are platforms to showcase, share, and amplify the ways teachers across LA are doing innovative things with Facing History.

Highlights this year included:
