How might pathway options be supported by systems to create a strong foundation for new and equitable learning models? Policies and Systems allow pathways to be brought to scale without only relying on the traditional ways of learning. Whether a grant, platform, technical assistance, diploma or curriculum network, aligned Policies and Systems are necessary for pathways to thrive. This pillar plays an integral role in shaping accessible and equitable experiences for all learners so that learning can be personalized, co-authored and sustainable. 

Policies and Systems allow for learner’s voices to be heard and creates space for real world learning opportunities which encourage all learners towards what’s next.

If we used to think that schools had to be organized into a unified system, now we know we have options.
