1.1. more frequent showcasing of what's being done in schools on

2.5. Pain Points

2.5.1. publishing similar content on others' sites, and not TMS

2.5.3. "Current Projects" blog is not showing enough about the work on the ground

2.5.4. like the simplicity of managing 2 types of content (blogs/pages), but need more separation of strands for different audiences.
