Who We Are


We believe great teaching matters. Our mission is to empower education leaders to recognize, support, and scale great teaching practices so that all children are able to realize success in life.


Consistently great teaching is in place across every school in Florida, for every student, every day.




We believe all schools and all students can succeed and thrive with the right instructional practices in place in classrooms.



We are committed to independent and transparent decision-making based on trustworthy, validated data.



We believe low-income students and students of color are underserved by the gaps that persist in our educational system. All students deserve an opportunity to succeed by receiving a great education in Florida’s classrooms.


Shared Vision

We recognize the power of working toward a shared vision and commitment to the conditions for great teaching and student success. We achieve that by operating in a collaborative, apolitical, non-competitive way.



We exist to make a real impact on student success by supporting education leaders with data, action, and advocacy so they can directly improve teaching and learning in classrooms.
