About Leadership for Educational Equity
LEE believes that we will succeed in eliminating educational inequity only if a critical mass of leaders at every level of government believes that it is possible and understands what it will take to accomplish this end. When Teach For American corps members experience success teaching in low income communities, they emerge with the conviction that the opportunity to attain an excellence education is a civil right, and that the achievement gap is both unacceptable and solvable, if enormously complex. This set of deeply held beliefs, coupled with natural leadership traits and abilities that characterize a Teach For America corps member, is exactly what we need driving long-term systemic change throughout the public sector.
LEE was launched to inspire and support individuals pursuing public leadership. We know there are significant hurdles on the path to realizing high impact careers in public leadership. Our mission is to enable individuals to realize high impact careers in public leadership by: (1) educating LEE members about the policy, advocacy and political landscape in their region and in the nation so they are inspired and ready to participate politically and civically; (2) equipping LEE members with the skills, resources, and experiences to successfully pursue public leadership positions; (3) helping LEE members become highly effective change agents for educational equity once in positions of leadership; and (4) fostering a thriving LEE community in which members support one another in pursuing public leadership and actively engage around political and civic matters.
LEE is a high-growth; results-oriented organization. We operate in an entrepreneurial environment, maintain focus on objective measures of success, and are committed to continuous improvement.
