Educators. Practitioners. Dragon Slayers.

We have commissioned a national board of advisors focused to guiding our Foundation’s public and education policy. This board of highly experienced practitioners and educators is positioned to help guide the Foundation’s core work and create connective tissue between our state advisory boards and the Foundation’s Executive Board of Directors.

We are comprised of a group of parents and educators, who come from diverse backgrounds and are as focused as we are on developing solutions to move our education system forward in a positive and meaningful way. They are responsible for providing oversight and mentorship to the Foundation’s executive team and interface with our advisory board to develop relevant and effective philanthropic programs. These aren’t people who complain about the issues, they work daily to find solutions to them.
