Our Services




We help state and local education leaders and policymakers address systemic issues that perpetuate learning gaps, inequity, ineffective practices, and teacher turnover.

Giving a Presentation
Team High Five




We show school leaders how to get everyone in the building effectively engaged in advancing the mission, removing hindrances to teaching and learning,  and improving school climate and culture.



We help classroom teachers and their mentors improve instruction, implement cultural responsiveness,

build stronger relationships with students and their families, and increase professional collaboration

in person and online.

While many new teachers can assert their readiness, most share uncertainty about their effectiveness in the first year. AWOL Classroom, a residency and induction program, helps more fully engage teacher candidates and novice teachers in effective instructional practice, both in person and online.

The EEG Philosophy

When everybody takes ownership of equitable learning, schools

improve. When principals lead with courage and teachers teach students (not just the content), learning gaps decrease, culture changes, and

schools become more effective.
