This post marks the launch of FSG’s education and youth blog. As a nonprofit research and consulting firm, we are fortunate to work with foundations, corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies on a broad range of education and youth focused issues ranging from early childhood to college graduation. Based on that breadth of experience, we thought it might be helpful to regularly share our perspectives on trends and approaches we see in the field. In each post we will share effective practices we hope will spread (The Good), challenges that need to be overcome (The Bad), and innovative or exciting ideas with transformative potential (The Bold). Please feel free to share with us your own perspective on the good, the bad, and the bold.
