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.

Blog Post

Ten bloggers. Nine posts. One week. At Bellwether, we spent last week talking about teachers and school leaders for our #BWTalksTalent series.  We shared insights from staff who’ve led classrooms, schools, and organizations. And we shared opinions, research, and personal experiences on how to create a robust ecosystem of adults to better serve students.

Historically, new teachers have received limited exposure to life in the classroom. “Trading Coursework for Classroom: Realizing the Potential of Teacher Residencies” outlines a promising deviation from this structure.
