CHICAGO, December 18, 2008 - President-elect Obama has announced one of
the priorities of his new administration will be to repair and
modernize the educational infrastructure in America.
Sagus International, a Chicago-based company, has taken a lead role in transforming the classroom environment to improve educational results by donating its time and products to two local, Chicago schools. Sagus worked with architects and educators to develop an ideal environment for student learning.
The documentary video, viewable on the Sagus Web site, demonstrates a transformation of classrooms at high performing Walter Payton College Prep and reconstituted Harper High School on Chicago’s South Side. The video features include:
- Comments from Arne Duncan, CEO, Chicago Public Schools and Secretary of Education nominee.
- Observations from teachers and school principals
- Reactions from students
- Visual impact of classroom transformation
For over 40 years, Sagus has supplied furnishings to America’s classrooms and is now pulling together all of its company resources to transform learning in America to improve educational results. Additionally, Sagus has sought industry-leading partners to participate in this process. For this project, key Sagus partners include:
- eInstruction™ (educational technology and assessment)
- 3M (educational technology)
- Legat Architects (classroom and school design)
Sagus views this as a continual journey and will be engaging with additional schools and industry partners in a quest to totally transforming the education environment in a manner that will allow students and educators to be more effective as they engage with each other to better compete in an ever-increasing, world wide, global environment.
