Many people contributed to the development and improvement of the school models and related materials on this website. In addition to the people listed below, hundreds of teachers and principals in Opportunity Culture schools have provided feedback we’ve incorporated into models and models tools. Any remaining flaws are our own. Participation does not indicate endorsement of any particular model, policy, or approach. Please help us improve the models. Share your ideas and feedback on our Feedback page.
The entire Public Impact team contributed input and review at various stages.

Special thanks to Katherine Mackey of Innosight Institute for her particularly detailed review of early models.
Thanks also to each of the people below who contributed ideas and review at various stages of our model thinking and writing. This is a brilliant, thoughtful, and committed group of people, and we are grateful for their generosity of time and thought.
