Portfolio Strategy

Portfolio Strategy

A great school for every child in every neighborhood

The portfolio strategy is a problem-solving framework through which education and civic leaders develop a citywide system of high-quality, diverse, autonomous public schools. It moves past the one-size-fits-all approach to education. It puts educators directly in charge of their schools, empowers parents to choose the right schools for their children, and focuses school system leaders on overseeing school success.

CRPE’s portfolio work creates impact through the Portfolio Network, a growing number of cities that are pursuing the portfolio strategy or are interested in learning how to get started. The Network is made up of 35 cities, representing over 4 million students. CRPE assesses a number of cities on equity, access, and outcomes in our Citywide Education Progress Reports. These reports measure city progress and allow for comparisons of outcomes and reforms between cities. We also produced a Portfolio Strategy Toolkit, a tool for practitioners to navigate portfolio implementation.
