    About Public Impact
    Public Impact’s mission is to improve education dramatically for all students, especially low-income students, students of color, and other students whose needs historically have not been well met. We are a team of professionals from many backgrounds, including former teachers. We are researchers, thought leaders, tool-builders, and on-the-ground consultants who work with leading education reformers.

    Learn more about an Opportunity Culture on the OpportunityCulture.org website, which provides free Opportunity Culture tools, educator videos and columns, and instructional leadership and excellence resources. Funding for development of resources to help schools design and implement Opportunity Culture models and support teachers taking on new roles has been provided by national foundations. Hear directly from educators who have worked in Opportunity Culture schools in columns published on national and regional news sites.

    The US PREP National Center is a teacher preparation support organization, charged with equipping the next generation of educators with the mindsets and tools necessary to adapt to evolving demographics and provide a quality education to all students across the United States. We believe that cultivating an environment in which people of all backgrounds can thrive is critical to achieving our mission of teacher preparation excellence. US PREP has partnered with the University of Texas Permian Basin to reimagine teacher preparation and extend the reach for more qualified talent entering the education profession.
