Given the longstanding inequities and racial injustice that have only been exacerbated by COVID-19, it’s more important than ever for school leaders to prioritize equity, justice, ethics, and character in order to support and protect our country’s most cherished resource: our children.
While strong academic results are a critical component of an excellent school, BES believes that character and human development are equally as integral to preparing students for success in college, career, and a lifetime of opportunity. As part of the Build Track of the 2021 BES Fellowship, BES is seeking two leaders who are particularly interested in founding schools that will be deeply rooted in character and committed to equity. These schools will have character development at the core of their models (rather than curricular or programmatic add-ons) and will be responsive to the needs of their communities.
While we are open to these leaders founding schools in geographies across the country, we are prioritizing leaders who want to found schools in AL, AZ, FL, TN, TX, or WI. If you are inspired by the opportunity to build and lead a school focused on equity, character, and human development, we want to connect with you as soon as possible.
