The Learning Initiative, in partnership with the Stanford d. School, offered its second cohort of School Retool, a professional  learning fellowship that helps school leaders redesign school culture using small, scrappy experiments called ‘hacks’. With our facilitators, Margaret Angell and Kippy Smith, along with NHLI’s local collaborator Jonathan Vander Els (a former principal of a competency-based school), participants learned about deeper learning, change processes, and the hack mindset, an approach to change that involves quick, small interventions and a willingness to try, fail, and learn.
