101 Top School and Charter Networks

School networks are one of the most important innovations in the modern era of U.S. K-12 education. They have boosted achievement and graduation rates and expanded quality options in the communities that need them the most. They’re so important that we recently released a new book on the subject called Better Together: How to Leverage School Networks For Smarter Personalized and Project Based Learning.

Today, we are recognizing 101 great school networks ranging from membership associations to charter management organizations that have achieved scaled impact to improve education for millions of children. (The * means they were mentioned in Better Together.)
