Public Impact’s mission is to improve education dramatically for all students, especially low-income students, students of color, and other students whose needs historically have not been well met.
Founded in 1996, Public Impact aims to contribute to dramatic improvements in the quality of education and related policy supports in the United States.
Public Impact’s work is designed to contribute to dramatic improvements in the quality of education and related policy supports in the United States. They are a team of professionals from many backgrounds, including former teachers and principals. They are researchers, thought leaders, policy experts, tool-builders, and on-the-ground consultants who work with leading education reformers.
They believe that if they focus on a core set of promising strategies for change, they and their partners and clients can make dramatic improvements for all students. Toward that end, they work on initiatives to:
-Find, develop, retain, and expand the impact of great teachers and leaders vital to operating great schools;
-Equip states and districts with tools to implement turnarounds in failing schools;
-Evaluate, replicate, and expand the supply of high-quality charter schools;
-Improve other areas of K-12 public education policy and management that serve as important levers for school improvement and related reforms.See more
