Education Pioneers will have a lasting impact by inspiring and connecting emerging leaders to organizations that are dramatically improving educational outcomes.
—Dr. Carol R. Johnson, Superintendent, Boston Public Schools; Education Pioneers Partner Organization
Across the country, hundreds of thousands of professionals in school districts, charter schools, nonprofits, and other education organizations are working hard to ensure that all students receive a high-quality education. Behind every student, teacher, principal, and school, thousands of leaders work daily to improve teaching and learning results.
Great teachers and school leaders must be surrounded by great school district leaders, nonprofit managers, and education entrepreneurs. Education Pioneers is one of a select few national organizations developing and infusing top leadership talent broadly into the education sector outside of the classroom.
With a mission to identify, train, connect, and inspire a new generation of leaders dedicated to transforming America's education system so that all students receive a quality education, Education Pioneers has been building a nationwide network of high-potential professionals and supporting them to launch non-teaching education careers since 2004.
All Education Pioneers Fellowships connect Fellows to mission-critical projects at leading education organizations and provide them with the opportunity to participate in full-day professional development workshops, interact with influential industry experts, and leverage the Education Pioneers network.
