The New Activate ED: Strengthening America’s Public Schools

Today we are excited to officially announce our new education collaborative, Activate ED. Thanks to a generous grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, three leading education organizations, The Broad Center for the Management of School Systems, Education Pioneers and the Strategic Data Project, have partnered to help transform public education. 

The Activate ED members are already offering Fellowships and Residencies that place top management and analytic leaders into education organizations nationwide. Our Fellows and Residents are supporting the work of teachers and administrators, helping to raise student achievement and pushing innovation in school organizations. The Activate ED members’ recruitment efforts are now joined with the goal of bringing in more than 1,500 top leaders to the education sector by 2014 through a variety of opportunities.

Activate ED provides a single place for potential Fellows and Residents to find opportunities. Our new quiz helps candidates find the right Fellowship or Residency for them in just five simple questions. The site also provides resources for our network of alumni and the education community to stay engaged by sharing tips and tools.
