What's your BIG, bold vision for leading educational change?

Launch a New School

Mary Jo and I launched the 1000 Schools Movement because we envision 1000 schools across the world embodying the belief that children are at the center of learning, and the outdated factory model of education is being disrupted–with love. 

With our combined experience of working in traditional public education, and leaving to create change for communities on the ground–Mary Jo through launching a micro school in South Dakota and David launching innovative charter schools, we are merging our passion and experience to offer programs and services to communities who want to start their own school.
