Generation Ready is one of the nation’s largest providers of teacher and school leader professional development services, through partnerships with districts, schools and state departments of education. The company's unique approach offers an evidence-based system of job-embedded education consultancy based on The Six Essential Practices of Effective Schools, professional development best practices and its proprietary ReadyPath technology platform. This blended delivery model has a proven track record of supporting and sustaining teacher skills and capacity in thousands of schools and ensuring a tight connection between professional development and student achievement.

Additionally, Generation Ready today announces that Dr. Richard F. Elmore, a professor of Harvard Graduate School of Education and a leader in the field of school improvement, has agreed to chair Generation Ready’s advisory board. “I have the greatest respect for their expertise and track record in providing support to schools in the process of improving teaching and learning. This is an exciting and powerful new venture that brings greater life and vitality to the work of school improvement,” said Dr. Elmore.
