How do you build a continuously improving system of schools? Eight Cities is a new website from Bellwether Education Partners that provides stories from education leaders in eight cities who have moved more students into better schools.
These eight multimedia stories combine the voices, portraits, and stories of real leaders, along with compelling data visualizations, to surface actionable and practical lessons for leaders, other cities, and the field. The most important lesson for current and future superintendents, members of boards of education, and state education leaders is that systemic change that benefits all students is possible.
Visit Eight Cities to see the lessons and share the journey of school leaders in Oakland, California; Chicago, Illinois; Denver, Colorado; Washington, D.C.; Newark, New Jersey; New Orleans, Louisiana; New York City, New York; and Camden, New Jersey.
