Opportunity Culture is a web resource that’s all about leveraging teacher talent. It’s the best place to learn about making the most of talent and technology to boost student achievement.
Brian and Emily Hassel provide Gladwell-like services to U.S. K-12–they produce analysis that makes you say, “I never thought of it that way.” Their team at Public Impact has been making the case that we need to invent organizational models and tech tools that will help every U.S. student benefit from great teaching.
