There is an answer to the challenges the world faces, and it’s here. At Penn GSE. It's in the inspiring 5th grade teacher you remember for the rest of your life. It’s in the fierce intellects who unpack language learning and literacy, the curriculum reformers who fight for the best interests of children and communities. It's in the STEM gurus, the chief learning officers, the legislative aides, the principals, the policymakers, the educational entrepreneurs.

We must invest in these fixers, fighters, and boundary-defiers. We must champion the extraordinary impact of those who not only understand education deeply, but know how to improve it. And we need you to join us.
