The Eskolta Network is an improvement community designed to connect educators in the shared challenge of transforming learning for all students. Since launching in 2010, Eskolta has partnered with over 1,000 educators and improved learning for more than 13,000 students. Drawing on current research, participating schools work together to explore problems, create practices and tools, test and modify them, and measure their impact. Together, we aim to confront the educational inequities driven by systems of racism and oppression in our nation and improve academic outcomes for students so they can thrive in high school and beyond. As an organization, we seek to continuously challenge ourselves to exhibit respect, focus, balance, integrity, and justice. To that end, Eskolta strives to be an antiracist organization, using its influence to fight against social injustice by supporting a culture of learning, empowerment, and equity in our schools.
