2020 Annual Report
2020 was a year unlike any other for our organization, our schools, and our world. When our nation’s schools closed, district and school leaders, teachers, and students were left to navigate extraordinary challenges. Those challenges proved to be inseparable from vast inequities in our country. As a national nonprofit that partners with schools and districts serving more than 440,000 students, EL Education supported myriad local responses, as diverse as they are heroic.
In the 2020 Annual Report, we highlight a few of these stories, as told by our partners, including:
- Dr. Yvette Stewart, Director of Elementary Teaching and Learning for Hamilton County Schools in Tennessee, one of several districts that launched a major partnership with EL Education in 2020: “Literacy is the key that opens all the doors to opportunity.”
- Patrick Finley, Co-Principal of MELS, an EL Education Credentialed School in Queens, New York reflecting on the bedrock of relationships there: “Even before the pandemic, Crew was the lifeblood of our school, the foundation of our enduring success.”
- Bill Haithcock, Principal of Harborside Academy, an EL Education Credentialed School in Kenosha, Wisconsin, speaking about horrific racial violence that unfolded outside the school, “In a moment when I felt lost, the EL Education network was my lifeline.
As schools return to in-person learning, we have an unprecedented opportunity—and EL Education an even deeper commitment—to reimagine our education system for equity.
Thank you to our partners, supporters, advisors, staff, and board for your partnership in realizing this vision.
