As a result of our efforts, Nick Donohue’s commentary has been published by The Huffington Post, U.S. News & World Report, Education Week, The Hechinger Report, The Boston Globe Magazine, WBUR Edify, CommonWealth Magazine, New England Public Radio and Boston Business Journal. His thought leadership has centered on issues affecting education, with a focus on success for all students. He has written on a wide range of topics including school funding, the importance of student voices, innovation for 21st century learners, and equity and achievement gaps. We have also secured media coverage for Nellie Mae’s ambitious plans to reinvent K-12 education, results of education trend surveys the Foundation commissioned, the Foundation’s grantmaking, and other Nellie Mae news to raise visibility for the Foundation and its mission.
Through more than 80 speaking engagements to date, the Speakers Bureau has raised awareness for Nellie Mae and its grantees, and for the Foundation’s mission to advance excellent, student-centered public education by transforming teaching and learning.
