PLA Proud: GVP Staff Member Named Woodrow Wilson Educational Leadership Fellow
WOODROW WILSON FOUNDATION SELECTS 25 OF INDIANA’S LEADING EDUCATORS FOR PRESTIGIOUS NATIONAL PROGRAM TO PREPARE NEXT GENERATION OF SCHOOL LEADERS
Twenty-five of Indiana’s leading educators have been honored as Woodrow Wilson Foundation MBA Fellows in Education Leadership, joining a statewide movement to help successful educators become strong school and school district leaders. One of those fellows is Phalen Leadership Academies’ own, Jeremy Kaylor.
Developed by the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, the WW Indiana MBA Fellowship program was created to develop a new model in education leader preparation, equipping graduates to head changing 21st-century schools across the state. It ensures that graduates have the knowledge and skills not only to guide schools and districts in a changing education environment, but also to close achievement gaps between America’s lowest- and highest-performing schools and between the country’s top-performing schools and those around the world.
Each Fellow receives a stipend, which covers full tuition, materials, and associated program expenses. In exchange, each Fellow agrees to serve in an approved school or district leadership role within the state for at least three years, with Foundation-supported mentoring.
