Education Pioneers Comes to Denver!

Education Pioneers, a national nonprofit that is fueling the transformation of U.S. public education by bringing 10,000 exceptional leaders into the sector by 2023 to accelerate systemic change for all students, announced today that it has grown its flagship education leadership program by over 25 percent and expanded to Denver.

Over 430 diverse emerging leaders, selected from an applicant pool of over 3,800, are participating in Education Pioneers’ 2014 Graduate School Fellowship, a career and leadership development program. Fellows work outside the classroom in nearly 200 education organizations nationwide – including districts, charter schools, local and state education agencies, and education nonprofits.  Fellows provide mission-critical capacity, and participate in robust professional development workshops. This year, Education Pioneers expanded this program to Denver, and 13 Fellows are working with nine education organizations here, including Denver Public Schools, DSST Public Schools, and Generation Schools.  See press release from Education Pioneers.
