About the Learning Partnership

“What exactly is inspiration?”
That is one of the first questions Steven McGee and Randi McGee-Tekula asked themselves when they co-founded The Learning Partnership in 2002. By asking that, Steven and Randi were trying to get to the core of what motivates a student. It’s a question we continue to ask to this day, as we work to improve outcomes for all students and inspire passion for learning.

What we do. We work in collaboration with K-12 school districts to study processes and outcomes to determine problems of practice. We use that research to co-design and co-develop solutions with teachers and scientists that address these problems. No day is identical here at The Learning Partnership, but our mission always remains the same: to create sustainable, equitable, student-first changes at the classroom, school, district, and state levels.

Why we do it. It’s our passion. Together, in partnership with schools, districts, scientists, parents, and teachers, equity and excellence for all students can be achieved.

How we do it differently. We have a long-term, collaborative approach to our partnerships. We work closely with community members, bridging the gap between research and practice to help everyone thrive—from the school district through to the individual student.
