Partnership for 21st Century Learning Joins Forces with Battelle for Kids

The Partnership for 21st Century Learning (P21) has partnered with Battelle for Kids (BFK).

P21’s existing networks will join BFK with the aim of continuing to advance 21st century learning. 

Over the past 16 years, P21 has built a coalition of like-minded organizations on 21st century readiness and broadened its initial focus on K−12 schools to include early learning, beyond school, and global school environments. P21 has also operated an Exemplar Program of K−12 schools and early and beyond school organizations that provide 21st century learning reflecting attributes such as global competency and the 4C’s. Additionally, the organization has hosted an annual national convening and has international partnerships committed to 21st century learning.

BFK, founded in 2001, collaborates with school systems and communities to help promote 21st century education. Examples include the Portrait of a Graduate community visioning process and BFK’s national network, EdLeader21, including more than 220 district and school leaders dedicated to 21st century education.
