Big Picture redesigns education in the United States by generating and sustaining innovative, personalized learning environments; it would partner with the Internationals Network for Public Schools, which provides quality education for recently arrived immigrants. Together they would establish a Deeper Learning Equity Fellows community that will build a cohort of practitioners focused on developing policies, programs, and practices that assure deeper learning opportunities for all young people, especially those traditionally underserved. In bellwether communities, this project would draw attention and leadership to ensuring that deeper learning outcomes are fostered and provided to all students, a key aspiration of the field.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of educator leadership development
Big Picture Learning is a nonprofit organization with an extensive history of improving student opportunities and outcomes by developing and supporting adult leaders. Since 2016, through the Deeper Learning Equity Fellowship, Big Picture Learning has successfully supported four cohorts of a dozen or more diverse, equity-focused, empowered leaders of change. This grant enables it to provide fellows with the tools and experiences they need to expand their leadership and influence in the public-school sector, thus enabling them to advance more equitable opportunities for those students least served by the existing system.
for support of a national education fellowship initiative
Big Picture Learning is a national nonprofit dedicated to supporting and sustaining personalized learning. For more than 20 years, it has trained adults to serve as leaders of equitable opportunities and outcomes in their schools and communities. This grant will support the group in developing a national fellowship program aimed at bridging the divide between education opportunity and outcomes, which is an issue that plagues our nation’s public education system.
