The Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21) awarded Kentucky two education awards earlier this month.
One was the inaugural John I. Wilson Leadership for Learning Award for the state’s Content Leadership Networks and Continuous Instructional Improvement Technology System (CIITS). The award honors John Wilson, National Education Association executive director, and founding member of P21 who is retiring this year. The criteria for the award include an emphasis on multi-stakeholder collaboration to honor John Wilson’s collaborative spirit and ability to create unique partnerships on behalf of the nation’s children.
Kentucky also won a 21st Century Education Award for the state’s Model Curriculum Framework. Kentucky and nine other states won the award in recognition of efforts to integrate 21st-century skills into their policy, practice and professional development.
