From Idaho Business Review | By Anne Wallace Allen
Terry Ryan is president of Bluum, a project of the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation that will spend $3 million in Idaho this year on education projects around the state.
Bluum creates and supports alternative education models with an emphasis on college and career readiness. Ryan, who has worked in education since 1990, was hired in 2013 to help the Albertson Foundation create Bluum, and the independent nonprofit now has five employees in downtown Boise and a mandate to fulfill the foundation’s goal of “20 in 10,” or 20,000 new high-performing charter school seats in 10 years.
