Job Opening: 4.0 Schoolwright
About 4.0 Schools
We’ve heard people say things like this about school reform: “We already know what works, we just have to scale it!” If you believe that, this is not the organization for you. We believe the fundamental structure of schooling in our nation is grossly outdated; the schools we have today can’t prepare children for what they’ll face in 10, much less 20 years. At 4.0, we are willing to re-think everything about school.
4.0 Schools is building a community of people committed to solving the toughest problems in schooling. We provide resources and training to launch schools and education businesses in the Southeastern US - the region of our country with the greatest need and the most opportunity. We invest incrementally in cultivating talented teams of leaders in four discrete stages:
1. Essentials - an intense short course in 4.0’s approach to problem solving;
2. The 4.0 Workshop - where Essentials alums prototype new ideas;
3. Innovator School – where select Essentials alums study the historical basis for pain points in schooling, get basic training in problem-solving, and meet innovators who have solved tough problems in other industries; and
4. Launch School - where small teams get more training and launch new schools and education businesses
