In the News: Opportunity Culture® Appearances

by | May 10, 2013

Opportunity Culture® recent appearances in the press and elsewhere:

  • The full guidelines for the latest round of the Investing in Innovation (i3) grants are out, and they include strong encouragement from the U.S. Department of Education to design, validate, and scale up innovations that extend the reach of excellent teachers. The competition requires applicants to address one of a handful of “Absolute Priorities,” one of which is improving teacher effectiveness. Applicants can meet this priority by “extending highly effective teachers’ reach to serve more students” (see full language in the guidelines).  They can also address “creating career pathways with differentiated opportunities and roles for teachers or principals, which may include differentiated compensation.” Those are right up an Opportunity Culture®‘s alley–so if you’re looking for resources on to meet that priority, check out all the materials on; see our complete list of tools to help understand an Opportunity Culture® and design Opportunity Culture® schools.
  • Charlotte’s WFAE reports on the flood of job applications for positions that extend the reach of excellent teachers to more students and to their teaching peers at Project L.I.F.T., an Opportunity Culture® pilot site in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school district.
