Our Solution

The Public Education Foundation understands that the highest-performing organizations, including our public schools, need to recruit and retain top talent. In order to bring about real and lasting change to public education, it is critical that educators have the vision, knowledge and courage to develop innovative solutions that produce results. The Foundation’s Leadership Institute of Nevada is building a network of leaders from Nevada’s public schools and businesses to drive statewide school improvement.
