Rising: The School of Education

Transforming 21st Century Education

At every stage of our lives, the ways we learn have outdistanced the ways we teach. At the Johns Hopkins School of Education, we see an opportunity in this disparity and an obligation to transform 21st century education through reform. We seek to raise $60 million to develop new ways of teaching using evidence-based and interdisciplinary research; to create exceptional opportunities for teacher preparation and leadership development; and to participate in university-wide initiatives in which teaching plays a vital role.  

Support for Research

Help us develop and expand innovative school turnaround models; support policy through independent review; and provide seed funding for faculty scholars to launch high-impact research and create effective professional development opportunities.

Support for Teacher Preparation and Development

Help us empower teachers to use their skills and training to maximize growth and learning for all students; link our program offerings to align with market and online demands; and recruit and retain the best talent for K-12 classrooms.

Support for Solving Global Problems

Help teachers create new ways to educate students with the knowledge and skills for productive lives through our work with the Science of Learning Institute; revive urban neighborhoods with good schools, through our work with the 21st Century Cities Initiative; and teach people around the world to live healthy and sustainable lives, through our work with the Alliance for a Healthier World.
