Morgridge Family Foundation And mindSpark Learning Are Changing The Education Landscape
Morgridge Family Foundation, in partnership with mindSpark Learning, is proud to announce an initiative to give away one million dollars in professional development for educators. Each organization believes in the importance of education and the ultimate impact it will have on the future of students and educators alike. While innovation is taking place in pockets across the country, the education system as a whole has still not adapted to the times and the growing demands of industries. It is imperative that students are aptly prepared for the careers of the future, and this begins and ends with education. That is why Morgridge Family Foundation and mindSpark Learning are making this announcement -- to elevate education through the most impactful path: educators.
