Public education should be a powerful lever for equity and excellence for all children. Yet the opportunity gap persists. Without transformative change, we will continue to undermine the potential of students, families, and communities to realize their ambitions.
Our nation spends more than $750 billion on K-12 education each year, with the largest school districts managing multi-billion dollar operating budgets. Yet the education sector struggles to compete for the exceptional talent it needs to serve organizations of this size and complexity. Transforming education requires not only visionary executive leadership and passionate teachers, but also leaders at ALL levels who can identify problems, generate appropriate solutions, and bridge ideas to implementation. Talent matters.
