Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education
The Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education (PLE) is a joint venture of the University of Virginia Darden School of Business and the Curry School of Education and Human Development.
The Darden/Curry Partnership’s University of Virginia School Turnaround Specialist Program is the most established school turnaround program in the country and the only school turnaround program in existence that utilizes a systemic approach to change by working with schools, districts, and states to build internal capacity. In 2008, the UVA School Turnaround Specialist Program was selected as a national finalist for the Pioneer Institute’s Better Government Competition.
The Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education has received national attention collaborating with some 82 school districts, in 12 states.
