Smart Lists

Every month, we publish a number of "Smart Lists," which we view as a chance to highlight people and organizations doing good work in specific areas of education. The monthly themes stay the same from year-to-year, but get updated with the latest up-and-coming names and influencers in education. In January, we highlighted people and organizations shaping education. In February, we will be highlighting CTE and HigherEd innovators, and in March, we will be recognizing leading schools, districts and networking. Smart Lists are some of our most viewed posts. Interested in sponsoring a Smart List? Email Erik at [email protected] to learn more about what we offer.
