Our Mission

Our Mission

The Broad Center for the Management of School Systems is a nonprofit organization that prepares strong system-level leaders in public K-12 education. Our mission is to raise student achievement by recruiting, training and supporting leadership talent from across America to transform urban school systems.

For generations, Americans have called public education “the great equalizer.” But in too many places, our school systems are not living up to that promise. Instead, these outdated, inefficient bureaucracies too often exacerbate inequities and get in the way of good teachers' ability to do great work. 

Driven by the belief in the power of public education, The Broad Academy and The Broad Residency in Urban Education are preparing a growing network of experienced leaders and managers inspired to make a difference and take on the challenge. By targeting resources where they are needed most, they are helping improve the learning outcomes and life chances of the students they serve.
