New cars and tires come with warranties. Surety bonds back up contracting work. Appliances may come with service guarantees, high-tech hiking boots with company satisfaction guarantees. And now, borrowing on this effective business model, the University of Washington College of Education’s Danforth Educational Leadership Program is certifying the on-the-job skills of its graduates with an official performance guarantee, one of the first of its kind in higher education.
At the Center for Educational Leadership we partner with courageous leaders in classrooms, schools and the systems that support them to eliminate educational inequities by creating cultures of rigorous teaching, learning and leading. Our vision is transformed schools empowering all students regardless of background to create limitless futures for themselves, their families, their communities, and the world.
