Review for Partners In School Innovation, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am the former executive director and a former board member of Partners in School Innovation. I've spent the past 17 years working to improve the quality of public schools locally and nationally and I've found that Partners in School Innovation has an unparalleled approach to the most powerful levers of school change: improving teaching quality and improving school and district leadership in ways that sustain results for kids. Partners' approach transforms schools from the inside out. The work is complex and multi-faceted, and the Partners team brings not only best-in-class knowledge about school and district transformation, but they bring it with a humility, a respect for the kids and families they serve and commitment to partnership that is unique. I'm proud to have been associated with an organization that is making a decisive difference for children living in poverty around the country.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to figure out ways to scale the impact of this organization without sacrificing the depth and quality of the approach. Thus far, Partners has done this in the Bay Area and Michigan and with funding and community support could make an impact in districts around the country.
