Developing strong K-12 system leaders—including those at the district, CMO, and nonprofit levels—is critical to ensuring the growth and success of the education sector. Yet many K-12 organizations tend to hire outside leaders rather than promoting from within, which disrupts the leadership pipeline and contributes to high turnover rates, meager professional development opportunities, and inadequate diversity at the top. What will it take to get organizations to invest in their own staff, whose talent may be hidden in plain sight?
