Ashoka’s Changemaker Schools Networkis a national (and soon-to-be international) community of leading elementary/primary schools working to ensure that all children receive a changemaker education by developing practices to teach empathy, teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving ("changemaking skills"), sharing their experiences with others, and advocating for the importance of a changemaker education. Schools in this network benefit from exchanges of best practices and opportunities to collaborate with Ashoka Fellows and partners.
