Jackie Bezos Dwight Davis

Jackie Bezos and Dwight Davis have joined the Turnaround for Children Board of Directors, Pamela Cantor, M.D., President and CEO of the leading public education nonprofit announced today. Turnaround for Children currently partners with 11 public schools in New York City, Newark, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. to address the obstacles to teaching and learning that stem from the stress of poverty. Over the past 13 years in 87 schools, Turnaround has broken down the process of school transformation into strategies that reduce stress, increase readiness to learn and cultivate an environment poised for academic achievement and personal growth – an approach increasingly looked upon by leading education experts and policymakers as a path to success for students facing adversity, particularly those in high-poverty communities.
