The Learning Accelerator (TLA) is building an education field where everyone learns faster and changes systems together to ensure every child reaches their unique potential.

Drawing on over a decade of impact, TLA is a national nonprofit that works across the education sector to help practitioners, leaders, and policy-makers learn faster from success and innovation and apply that knowledge to improve how we are educating students. We research and investigate; we document and publish; we connect, collaborate, and build coalitions. We help school systems improve and offer expertise in areas including emerging technologies, school models, and systems of support. What we are, most of all, is visionaries, not for incremental change, but for a revolutionary shift in how students are educated and how we work together to make that happen.
