Awards & Honors

Ryan Fink

Ryan Fink was awarded $114,508 by Research For Action for a collaborative project with the Philadelphia Education Research Consortium (PERC), “Scan of Early Literacy Practices in Philadelphia’s Charter Schools.” This is a sub-award from a grant PERC received from the William Penn Foundation. The project plans to interview charter school personnel familiar with their school’s approach to early literacy to understand the practices and approaches being implemented across charter schools in the city in order to identify opportunities for collaboration and knowledge-sharing, as well as to highlight opportunities for future funding to support the implementation of strong early literacy practices.
