Document Number: 10931Rocketship Education: Pioneering Charter Network Innovates Again, Bringing Tech Closer to Teachers - Rocketship Education is a network of seven public charter elementary schools, which is getting good results with low-income students. Eighty-two percent of its students scored proficient or advanced on California Standards Test for math, compared to an 87% average for the state's highest-income districts. They do it by expanding the reach of their strongest teachers, paying excellent teachers more, and integrating Public Impact’s principles of an Opportunity Culture into Rocketship’s Plans. Now, Rocketship is set to move into Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Memphis, Nashville, Washington D.C., and New Orleans. (Sharon Kebschull Barrett and Joe Ableidinger, Public Impact, September 2013)...
