Darden/School of Education Partnership for Leaders in Education
What We Do
The Darden/School of Education Partnership for Leaders in Education (PLE) is a joint venture of the University of Virginia Darden School of Business and the School of Education and Human Development and is the most established school turnaround program in the country.
About Our Approach
The Darden/School of Education Partnership’s University of Virginia School Turnaround Specialist Program is the only school turnaround program in existence that utilizes a systemic approach to change by working with schools, districts, and states to build internal capacity.
In 2008, the UVA School Turnaround Specialist Program was selected as a national finalist for the Pioneer Institute’s Better Government Competition. The Darden/School of Education Partnership for Leaders in Education has received national attention collaborating with some 82 school districts, in 12 states.
