The issues that exist within the education system in regards to learning opportunities for the next generation are multi-faceted. From a still existing achievement gap amongst minority students and their peers, to the need for more black and brown students to get involved in STEM and a cry for more young people to become teachers, the work of those within the education field is never ending.

From university professors, to school president’s and organization leaders, see which female bosses have made our education leaders list.
