Bellwether Education Partners

At Bellwether, we envision a future where all young people have access to an equitable and excellent education, and live lives filled with opportunity. We envision an education system that is effective, equitable, and responsive.

We’re a nonprofit that partners with leaders and organizations across the education sector — from school districts to charter management organizations and foundations to nonprofits — to deepen and accelerate their impact, and to develop and amplify the insights, innovations, and ideas necessary to move our sector forward.

What We’re Learning

A critical part of our work is sharing what we’re learning to shape a better education system. Our insights come from working directly with partners and conducting research into deep and systemic challenges facing our sector.

Who We Are

We’re a passionate and viewpoint-diverse team with experience leading education organizations, advising teams across the public and private sectors, and generating leading-edge research. We’re mission driven and visionary. We’ve previously served as teachers and educators, school and district leaders, policymakers, government officials, and founders. We reflect the broad diversity of the education sector and bring a deep understanding of the critical and evolving issues that education practitioners face. We apply that knowledge every day in partnership with clients and more broadly to help lead the field toward a more equitable future.


Customized Approaches, Lasting Solutions

Whether it’s forecasting policy trends, partnering to build a school district’s five-year strategic plan, evaluating the effectiveness of an after-school program, identifying solutions to education’s thorniest challenges, or amplifying the best of the work happening across our sector, we tailor our support to meet clients’ needs. This makes our work uniquely customized and durable.


Our Impact

We work with organizations that share our commitment to equity, envision a dramatically better education for all, and meet young people where they are — regardless of identity, circumstance, or background — to deliver exceptional support that ensures students are prepared for a life of purpose and opportunity.

We look ahead to help point the field and our partners forward. Our urgency, expertise, and dedication create opportunities for our clients — and improved contexts and conditions for young people across the country.
