Got writing? We want to see it.

On the Great Schools Partnership blog, we write for and about students, educators, administrators, policymakers, and other education stakeholders. Our goal is to provide fresh and timely insights about everything from educational equity and racial justice to school improvement and classroom practice.

If you’ve got big ideas or personal stories to share, you’ve come to the right (or write!) place.


The best way to familiarize yourself with our style and content preferences is to read our blog. Suffice it to say, everything we publish is related in some way to education. More specifically, we’re interested in school improvement and educational equity.

We like big ideas and personal stories; we love exemplars, tools, and resources; we love commentary and opinions on policy and practice. This is not a venue to promote or sell services or products.

We don’t pay for blog content; you will receive a byline and an optional link to your website or a social profile of your choice. Authors reserve all rights to their work.
