Disrupting The Teacher Professional Development Industry

Great teaching takes practice. Tulsa is perhaps the most comprehensive example of the vision sought by Leading Educators, which launched in 2008 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

“There was very little professional development happening, and when it was, it was happening in very large, unmanageable groups, in one-time doses that didn’t have a connection to what’s happening in unique schools.
