Overview of Current Investments


Transformative Federal and State Policy


We support federal and state policies that remove the barriers to effective K-12 education and create the human capital, school choice, resource and governance conditions under which districts and schools can succeed. We also help state education agencies themselves become dynamic, performance-oriented organizations that are ready to adopt and implement bold policies.

Groundbreaking Innovation in Teaching and Learning


Given the scope and significance of the education crisis in America, students cannot wait for the existing public education system to transform. They need alternative pathways that reinvent American education and provide far better learning opportunities.

Technology is a tremendous untapped resource to dramatically increase student learning. By redefining “classrooms” as we know them, technology can serve to individualize the pace, style and model of instruction to meet each and every student’s needs. We also support labor organizations with the courage and vision to radically innovate collective bargaining in ways that benefit teachers and students.

Strong Leadership


To become effective, efficient organizations that serve students well, American school districts and schools need strong, talented leadership. We have supported rigorous recruitment and executive training of the best and brightest American leaders to take on the challenge of transforming American urban education. 

We are proud that The Broad Center for the Management of School Systems has trained hundreds of leaders, the majority of whom are now working in school districts around the country. Broad Superintendents Academy graduates are raising student achievement faster than comparison groups after three years in their positions. And Broad Residents are freeing more money for the classroom by introducing central office efficiencies.

Redesigned, High-Performing Institutions


Existing public education systems need to be redesigned to become efficient and effective organizations that support teachers and students and deliver results. 

Redesigned school districts, high-quality public charter schools, Broad Prize districts and alternative pathways like Teach For America have one thing in common. They have all adopted or created radically different models that demonstrate it is possible to build high-performing organizations that produce gains for students. We support these best-in-class institutions and share the tools and practices that will make it faster and easier for new leaders to grow high-performing organizations to scale, without wasting a moment reinventing the wheel.
