We can all imagine how great learning looks and feels.  What’s challenging is figuring out how to make it happen for every child, in every classroom, in every school.

How might school and district leaders enable and support teacher collaboration so teachers are improving alongside their students? How might teachers work together during the school day to ensure that what we’re teaching students is truly preparing them for college and careers?  What can philanthropic partners do to disrupt and remedy larger inequities?

Leading Educators welcomes you to learn with us as we collectively map the way forward to school systems that empower every child and every teacher to be their best.  During our four-day summer institute, we will:

  • BUILD knowledge of high-quality content and teaching,

  • ENGAGE in reflection and practice with nationally-renowned leaders of school transformation, and

  • UNPACK our personal biases and the biases of our colleagues that get in the way of students’ learning.

Start this next school year with an achievable plan for greater equity. We promise to help you get there.  Take a look at one region's journey:
