NPLI is proud to announce its new partnership with the HOPE (Harnessing Optimism and Potential through Education) Foundation. Our two not-for-profits 501(c)(3) have a common purpose and mission: To build the capacity of school and district leaders to serve as change facilitators, instructional leaders, and problem solvers.
The NPLI Director Lew Smith moderated a panel on the topic of "Leading School Improvement and Transformation – What gets in the Way?" at the National Forum on School Improvement, April 12-13
President Alan Blankstein founded the HOPE Foundation
in 1989. Archbishop Desmond Tutu serves as the board’s Honorary Chair. “Failure is NOT an option” became the foundation’s mantra and the title of Alan’s highly acclaimed book published by Corwin Press.
HOPE is a leadership organization internationally recognized for reculturing school communities and sustaining student success. Its impact has been felt in over 255 cities across 38 states, the District of Columbia and throughout Canada.
