We draw on the following three strategic levers to advance student-centered learning and our theory of change. We group our work using these three levers into a number of big issues and concrete initiatives.

  • 1. Thought Leadership

    We contribute ideas, research, analysis, and stories to enrich and inspire the conversation on education redesign. This includes publishing reports, memos, and FAQs; writing a blog; hosting public events with guest speakers; and more.

  • 2. Policy Advocacy

    We work—in collaboration with legislators, communities, education organizations, and educators—to advance policy recommendations that clear barriers, create opportunities, and provide encouragement for high quality, equitable, student-centered learning.

  • 3. Educator Support

    We connect and support a core group of schools using innovative designs for student-centered learning and collaborative leadership. We do this by hosting convenings; weaving a network and making introductions; producing resources and guides; and partnering with other organizations who provide more direct support to schools.
