Leading Educators develops teacher-leaders in order to raise student achievement and retain talented educators in urban schools. We aim to ensure that public education successfully trains its middle managers, thus retaining our best teachers and bolstering the pipeline of future principals.
To date, Leading Educators has trained 41 teacher-leaders in its New Orleans pilot region. Building upon the New Orleans region and Teaching Leaders (UK), Leading Educators is now an independent 501c3 organization assembling an ambitious team to expand the program nationally. In New Orleans and the first national expansion site, Kansas City, we are currently working with 106 teacher-leaders across over 60 schools. Our expansion model aims to serve 12 regions by 2016.
