About the Learning Differences Programme:
Oak Foundation’s Learning Differences Programme believes that together we can build a world in which schools unlock the creativity and power of every young person and equip each one to shape more just and equitable communities. We believe that every student should benefit from engaging and rigorous educational opportunities regardless of personal and social identifiers that privilege some students and marginalise others. In our work, we are particularly focused on efforts that support students with learning differences who experience additional marginalisation due to racism and poverty. Our grantee partners rethink ways learning happens for students and better prepare adults to engage and support all students, particularly those with learning differences. We support research, the translation of research to educator practice and systems change efforts that promote more equitable learning outcomes for students with learning differences. Please visit the programme page on our website for a description of the programme’s strategy and current portfolio of grantees.
