TALC New Vision
The Technical Assistance & Leadership Center
The Technical Assistance and Leadership Center (TALC New Vision) is committed to a new vision of public education based on a diversity of personalized learning environments, a diversity of school governance structures, and the ability of all families, regardless of their economic status, to choose the options that best fit their needs.
TALC New Vision assists leaders creating new small schools in Milwaukee from the visioning process through the school’s opening and first two years of operation.
As intermediary for “A New Vision of Secondary Education in Milwaukee,” a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, TALC New Vision connects schools, workplaces, and other community resources to improve pathways for youth to postsecondary learning, careers, and effective citizenship. TALC New Vision provides and brokers services to new school founders, convenes key stakeholders under the grant, monitors fiscal responsibility, measures outcomes of the reform efforts, and promotes policies that sustain effective small school options.
TALC New Vision emerged from conversations about advancing education reform held by leaders from the national educational options movement, alternative schools, community-based organizations serving at-risk youth, grassroots education reform activists, experts in project-based learning, information technology career training, education technology career training, education technology development, nonprofit organizational management, and child and educational psychology.
With financial assistance from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and a good working relationship with the Milwaukee Public Schools, TALC New Vision is the cornerstone of the New Vision of Secondary Education in Milwaukee.
