Across the country, school systems are striving—sometimes struggling—to make meaningful progress in closing the opportunity gaps that hinder students’ success. Leading Educators exists to support schools in doing exactly that.
We’re reinventing professional development for teachers, igniting the potential for exponential impact in schools and across districts.
Leading Educators partners with school systems to build and sustain the conditions, teaching, and leadership to ensure that the students furthest from opportunity succeed in school and in life.
We support dozens of school systems across the country who are committed to making bold, systemic change stick. True equity won’t come from scattershot solutions but rather from working smarter. And more importantly, from working together.
