Impact Report 2019
We gathered and analyzed information from our partner organizations’ programs in India, Indonesia, Kenya and Malaysia regarding their impact on school leaders, teachers and students, and captured their learnings about effective professional development for school leaders. This is preliminary research, and there is a long way to go in establishing an expansive knowledge base on this issue. Our hope is that this report sparks a conversation within the education community about investing in school leaders.
