Public Impact‘s mission is to dramatically improve learning outcomes for all children in the U.S., with a special focus on students who are not served well. We are a team of researchers, thought leaders, tool-builders, and on-the-ground consultants who work with leading education reformers.
We believe that if we focus on a core set of promising strategies for change, we can make dramatic improvements for all students. Toward that end, we 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 reform.
Our clients include private foundations, state and federal policymakers, innovative districts, charter management organizations, child advocacy non-profits, and other reform-oriented leaders.
