Due to popular demand, Friends of Texas Public Schools and engage2learn are partnering to offer the 2017 - 2018 Game Changers cohort.  A select group of Texas Superintendents and Principals are invited to become  Game Changers learning from the nation’s top business leaders who are cultivating innovative cultures. 

Our school systems and students could benefit tremendously by borrowing a few pages from their playbook on leadership, culture and communication.  Although public education continues to improve by every measure, confidence in public education continues to weaken with each passing year. Let’s learn together from some of the world’s most successful organizational and brand leaders how to unite our teams, tell our story, and beat those competing for our students and funding.
