Network of Leaders and Learners

About us: The Network of Leaders and Learners is a capacity building initiative designed to connect and encourage educators through innovative research, service, and learning experiences.

One of our specific goals is to build capacity and support for rural education in Idaho, as well as build connections through rural-urban partnerships. The Network engages in practice-research partnerships to leverage strengths and collaborate in order to solve problems together.

We want to be a viable partner in supporting educational leaders from the system level to the classroom, which includes an ecosystem of support for educator recruitment, preparation, development, coaching and retention strategies and research.

Specifically, the Network is an effort to bridge the gaps between research, policy, and practice through ongoing partnerships.
