The Professional Learning Community for 21st Century Education Leaders

EdLeader21 is a national network of school and district leaders focused on integrating the 4Cs (critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity) into education.

How do I become a member?

“I believe that any district or school that is serious about preparing its students to be college, career and citizenship ready for the 21st century should be a part of this professional learning community for leaders."
