For more than a generation, we have focused on improving the education of poor and minority students. Real gains have been made, but many gaps still exist. To increase the achievement levels of minority and low-income students, we need to focus on what really matters: high standards and visionary school leaders. Our education system is ripe for disruption and innovation.
Aspiring school founders and owners are the new faces of social innovation. InnoPower works directly with education-focused social entrepreneurs, CEOs, and administrators by providing access to entrepreneurial training, capacity-building resources, and a community platform to share their vision.
AREAS OF FOCUS:
Entrepreneurship: teaching education entrepreneurs how to start and scale their programs and schools
Social Innovation: championing new practices that meet student needs better than existing solutions
Recognition: celebrating the education entrepreneurs that are positively disrupting the system
