Ideal Learning Made Real

The Trust for Learning is featured in a mini-documentary created in partnership with NationSwell that shows what ideal learning looks like: evidence-based, curriculum-rich learning that above all is child-centered. The video also features Lumin Education, an exemplar provider whose developmental approach educates the whole child and delivers results—regardless of socioeconomic status. In 2015, 95% of their 3rd grade alumni graduated high school, with 89% of those going on to attend college.
