How We Think About Our Work

The ability to impact all students at scale requires coordinated efforts across multiple levels of the system: national, state, institutional, and classroom. Early experimentation at the local level surfaces new ideas that inform and influence higher levels of the system and lead to changes in structures and policies that enable broad, large-scale action. This, in turn, promotes ongoing implementation and innovation at the local level.

Change at scale requires work at multiple levels of the system.
