We are an independent strategy firm supporting the leaders of education unions

Your union has survived education funding challenges, the Janus decision, and charter schools. Now you're fighting back for what your members and your students need.

There are plenty of generic resources for unions to meet the challenges they face. But ‘one size fits all’ doesn't work in the classroom - why would it work for you?

Big challenges deserve big support, which is why the Education Union Lab is dedicated to custom insights for education union leaders. We can provide you with more options to win stronger contracts, fair funding for schools, and accountability for charter schools.
