The United States K-12 education sector, a $600 billion industry responsible for the second largest workforce in the country, has tremendous management opportunities and challenges.
This report by Education Pioneers, funded by the MetLife Foundation, provides a fresh look at the need for leadership and management in public education and reveals what efforts will be needed to strengthen the leadership pipeline from within education, and to bring in people and practices from beyond education.
A great number of leaders and managers will be needed to run effective education agencies, organizations, and companies in the years to come. At Education Pioneers we believe that leaders and managers are the invisible lever to transform the sector and results for students, and that these people, and their roles, are crucial to optimize the way our nation's education system is organized and to maximize its impact. By working together, we can transform education into the best led and managed sector in the U.S. so that all children receive a high-quality education.
