A Matchbook Principal wants what any Principal of a struggling wants: more stability among administrators and faculty and improved academic results for students.
The highest performing teachers are not enticed to teach in the lowest performing schools. No HR recruiting strategy, regardless of how well it’s designed, will effectively combat the lack of effective teachers in these schools. Matchbook realizes that these schools’ faculties and staffs are often tired, frustrated, and lacking the necessary tools and resources needed to bridge the widening academic gaps and increase performance. While turnaround schools are often abandoned by the most hardened education reformers, Matchbook believes they can become inspiring and productive places for children to learn and teachers to work.
