Two Chicago leading educators discuss equity

Ignite Real Opportunity

For more than a decade, we've helped teachers meet their students' big dreams with lessons that prepare them for the future they want.

When Teachers Learn, Students Learn

Foster Thriving, Change-Ready Schools

If you’re here, you probably believe schools have the potential to offer more to students, but you might not know where to start. At Leading Educators, we’re eager to help you see new possibilities, prioritize your efforts, and empower your people.

We believe in designing realistic solutions for complex challenges, building the structures and habits for meaningful impact beyond test scores. That’s how our partners continually get better results, faster than ever before.

Expand Access, Grow Potential

School is about more than learning academic skills. We believe it should offer every young person the chance to grow into their fullest self, inclusive of what they look like and where they come from.

That’s why we coach and train teachers to craft their lessons through a vision called Teaching for Equity. Teachers can expand access to learning by affirming students’ strengths and identities, cultivating productive learning habits, and helping them connect more deeply with others.
