PSP no more: Philly education nonprofit changing its name, mission
By Kristen A. Graham, The Philadelphia Inquirer | June 7, 2022
Stoneleigh Board Member Stacy Holland is executive director of a nonprofit changing its name to Elevate 215 and focusing on modernizing Philadelphia schools’ learning experience.
The Philadelphia School Partnership is becoming Elevate 215, officials will announce Tuesday. The organization, which has raised $134 million since its founding in 2011, had focused on expanding the number of “high-quality seats” in schools. Some critics felt this emphasis deepened inequities, favoring charter and private schools.
Going forward, Elevate 215 wants to newly focus on modernizing Philadelphia schools’ learning experience, and elevate good educational practices, officials said.
