Linked Learning is a well-studied approach, and as a result, there is a robust body of data available for you to learn about Linked Learning’s successful progression or to draw from when explaining the benefits of the approach to your audience. SRI International Center for Education Policy (SRI) released new data from a multiyear evaluation of the California Linked Learning District Initiative in 2014 that outlines areas where Linked Learning students are making greater strides than their similar peers. The District Initiative began in 2009 and includes high schools in nine districts across the state.
