Entrepreneurship education shouldn't be a luxury. It should be a critical component in all students' academic careers. It prepares them to produce creative solutions to problems, work collaboratively toward shared goals, adapt to ever-changing conditions, and develop the grit and resilience to forge their own paths. But what is entrepreneurship education? Historically, it involved a standalone course in which students learned how to run a business. While that approach still has tremendous value in the development of entrepreneurial knowledge and skills, the field is now aligning with a variety of educational methodologies that share similar goals. Touted as avenues to cultivate 21st century skills, the ways in which we can help students think and act entrepreneurially are immeasurable, and the time to embrace them is now. As traditional jobs are replaced with advanced technology and individuals must navigate increasingly complex paths, it is vital that we prepare youth for an unpredictable landscape ahead. The four case studies presented in the Foundation's most recent Intersections publication, Connecting Entrepreneurship with 21st Century Learning, each outline a different model of excellence within our portfolio and demonstrate that championship of the entrepreneurial spirit comes in many forms.

In 2018, Burton D. Morgan Foundation planted the seeds of entrepreneurship around Northeast Ohio through our work in grantmaking, ecosystem building, and knowledge sharing. Below, we are pleased to present the fruits of our labor.
Baltimore is the 30th-largest US city by population and is a study in contrasts. It has a low average income compared with other wealthy Northeast cities, has nine colleges and universities, and is a magnet for people pursuing higher education but has undergone decades of population loss. A large social sector provides important services to residents and buoys the local economy: nearly every third job in the city is with a nonprofit employer. But this also illustrates the city's limited economic vibrancy. This mix of market and nonmarket forces makes Baltimore an important place to examine the geography of opportunity in an American city.

This Question Bank offers users the ability to draw from a variety of questions that can help to inform and start a dialogue with grant applicants or recipients on their learning culture and goals. Some of these questions can be used in a grant application template or in a more informal conversation with a potential grant recipient. They may also be useful internally for discussing or reviewing a grant application.

According to the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) drought causes more deaths and displaces more people than any other natural disaster. UNCCD also states that by 2050, worldwide population growth will result in a 50 percent increased demand for water.
Drought is often defined as an unusual period of drier than normal weather that leads to a water shortage. However, high temperatures and lack of precipitation are not the only causes of drought; overuse and misuse of water can also result in drought.
Droughts can occur in any climate zone and are a normal part of the climate cycle. They can be short or last several years.
Like other weather hazards, droughts may require extra vigilance or a change in normal behavior. For example, water usage such as watering lawns may be restricted. Similarly, camp or trash fires may be prohibited to prevent a wildfire.

The Global Integrated Drought Monitoring and Prediction System (GIDMaPS) is a drought monitoring and prediction system that provides near real-time drought information based on multiple drought indicators and input data sets.
With recent developments in federal education policy, school turnaround has become an increasingly prominent area of focus for practitioners and policymakers nationwide. However, what we know about effectively turning schools around is limited.
In this archived webinar, we explore strategies at the school and district level to improve the most struggling schools. (Note that our focus is not on the lowest five percent of schools but on schools in the lowest third of school performance in California.)
This webinar focuses on:
Effective strategies cited by 9 turnaround school principals
The role the district can play in both contributing to and reversing school failure
A practitioner perspective on what is required for dramatic school change
What instructional practices are most likely to lead African American male students to excel academically?
The quality of instruction influences the quality and quantity of learning for all students, but especially for African American males.
For the past six years, the National Center for Urban School Transformation has been identifying and studying urban schools that achieve outstanding academic results for all students, including African American males. These studies have pinpointed practices that lead African American male students to excel.
This webinar provides information about the instructional practices that make a difference, and also discusses strategies for changing instructional practices in schools.
Specific topics addressed are:
Key instructional practices that influence the extent to which African American males are likely to learn rigorous academic content
Key instructional practices that influence the commitment and engagement of African American males
Schoolwide practices that influence changes in classroom instruction
