This talk will describe the New School (Escuela Nueva) movement in Colombia, a sweeping educational reform that significantly expanded educational opportunities for poor and bypassed children.

Beryl was the co-creator of the original New School materials. Her Ph.D. dissertation analyzed the model’s potential for bridging the gap between rural and urban learners.
