Education Pioneers shares stories of impact, insights, ideas, and opinions to advance the conversation about what great leadership in education looks like.
In this Pioneer Profile, EP hears from Alumnus Jon Hanover (Analyst Fellow, 2010), who founded Roots Elementary School in Denver, Colorado, a brand new school that is set to open this August. Read on to hear more about why Jon wishes we paid teachers like we pay hedge fund managers and professional athletes, why his favorite school memory includes jumping on furniture and Latin verbs, and what it was like when one of his students learned to read for the very first time.

Like so many of us, I celebrate the Confederate flag being removed everywhere it’s found – from capitol buildings to retail stores. For me and for millions of people in our country, it is a symbol of hatred, oppression, and racism that should have been removed a long time ago. While it’s an important symbolic movement to remove the flag, it’s not nearly enough.
Yesterday, the Noble Network of Charter Schools was named the winner of the 2015 Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools. EP is thrilled to congratulate Noble on their recognition and to be a partner supporting their work!
Today on the 12 th anniversary of our organization, EP celebrates our original Pioneer – Scott Morgan, Founder & CEO of Education Pioneers. In this Pioneer Profile, Scott talks about why he’s inspired by underdogs, how coaching basketball as a high school student helped shaped his purpose, and why his bookshelf is stacked with books about Abraham Lincoln.
