OUR MISSION
The Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference exists to create a forum for leaders in education reform. We seek to create a constructive dialogue about how leadership skills applied to the education sector can be used to solve the most pressing and complex challenges in public education.

ABOUT: YALE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT EDUCATION LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
From its modest beginnings in 2007, The Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference has grown to be a nationally recognized forum for education reform. The ELC is an annual two-day conference focused on convening the nation’s leaders in education reform. Through panels, networking, conversations, and workshops, our speakers, attendees, presenters, and keynotes create a community that helps build urgency in working toward student success and system-wide progress.

The ELC is sponsored and run by the Yale School of Management Education Club. Each year, 20+ Yale School of Management students work from early in the school year to conceptualize, plan, and realize the spring conference. The 2019 conference will mark our 13th anniversary.

TNTP believes our nation's public schools can offer all children an excellent education. A national nonprofit founded by teachers, we help school systems end educational inequality. We work at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning. Since 1997, we've partnered with more than 200 public school districts, charter school networks, and state departments of education. We have recruited or trained more than 50,000 teachers, inspired policy change through acclaimed studies such as The Opportunity Myth (2018), The Mirage (2015), The Irreplaceables (2012), and The Widget Effect (2009), and launched the Bridge Fellowship, our signature program for diverse leaders with bold ideas for public schools. Today, TNTP is active in more than 50 cities. In The Opportunity Myth, we wanted to understand how well school was setting up students to meet their goals for themselves. To find out, we followed nearly 4,000 students in five diverse school systems across the country. In this three-dimensional version of our study, you'll meet three of those students. Join us to find out what we learned about students’ experiences in school, how they feel about those experiences, and what we can do to make them better.
