Ford Next Generation Learning
Designed by EDC and the Ford Motor Company Fund, the Ford Next Generation Learning (NGL) initiative includes an interdisciplinary high school curriculum, professional development, and a successful approach to reinventing high schools to enhance student outcomes. Developed by EDC, the curriculum—Ford Partnership for Advanced Studies (Ford PAS)—challenges students academically while also developing their problem solving, teamwork, and communication skills. Ford PAS links classroom learning to future opportunities in business, engineering, and technology, and it forges innovative partnerships with business, higher education, and the community. The Ford NGL website includes the curriculum modules, teaching and learning resources, and a framework to transform schools and engage business and civic leaders.
