Always Learning

Students in great schools are always learning. And in great schools, teachers and other school leaders learn right alongside them. That’s why this Back to School season we are celebrating teachers and schools and their commitment to ensuring students are learning in every class, every day.

We’re sharing great stories about what’s working in education. Whether it’s the dedication of a Teacher of the Year engaging refugee students in Washington state, or the progress of a high school working within a broader network of schools—these stories highlight the commitment and impact educators across the country bring into classrooms every day.

Join us by sharing these stories, and by sharing something you’re committed to learning or improving upon this year. At the foundation, we believe in #AlwaysLearning.

Opportunity for All

We believe it shouldn’t matter where you are from, how much money you have, or what color your skin is—every student should have the same opportunity to succeed. That’s why our foundation has always invested in public schools and always will.

Why Networks?

There is no one-size-fits all solution to school improvement. School leaders, including principals and teachers, working together are in the best position to determine how to best support their students. This is at the heart of our Networks for School Improvement work. Watch this video to find out more.

The Power of Partnerships

Our US Program President Allan Golston describes why we’re investing in partnerships between networks of schools and supporting organizations, and how they’ll work together to solve common problems school face.

Heroes in the Field

Bill Gates and Mandy Manning

Bringing Leaders Together

No two schools are the same, but by bringing together school leaders to learn from each other, we can make progress. Here’s an example of how a network of schools contributed to the success of Kenwood Academy in Chicago.
