Chief Executive Officer

THE CHALLENGE

It is estimated that 65% of children entering elementary school today will work in jobs that currently do not exist.  More than 5 million jobs will disappear in the next five years alone due to the rapid economic transformation underway.  Our schools and school systems were designed to serve a different economy and population of children and have largely remained unchanged in the last century.  As a result, they are failing to prepare children in our country for a life of economic opportunity and choice, or to navigate our diverse and dynamic global society.

The St. Louis Public Schools (SLPS), serving more than 20,000 students, recently earned its way off of the state’s probation list for improvements in attendance and fiscal management; yet, 91% of students fail to meet basic proficiency in mathematics by the 8th grade, nearly a third of students will not graduate, and those that do earn an average ACT score of 17 (four points below the already low bar for initial college or career readiness of 21). Normandy, just outside of city borders, had a composite ACT score of 15, ranking in the bottom quartile nationally.

Absent a coordinated and systemic approach, progress in the aggregate remains limited while the stakes of the status quo increasingly limit the choices of children attending our public schools and hamper the social and economic vitality of the region.

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY TRUST

The Opportunity Trust exists to ensure every child born in St. Louis is prepared to lead a life of choice and dignity as an adult. It pursues this mission by examining barriers to economic mobility in the St. Louis region, developing research-based theories of system-level change, and building national and local funds dedicated to eliminating these barriers over time.

One of the most urgent barriers to opportunity in St. Louis today is the changing nature of work and our increasingly outdated and ineffective public education system. Our first focus, Reimagining School, aims to catalyze a fundamental transformation of our public education system so that it can prepare children for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

Building off the successes and failures of the most effective transformations of public education in our nation, this fund will invest in the following levers that together drive systemic change:

Building the vision and capacity of talented educators to scale, transform and launch new and innovative schools in St. Louis;
Growing talent pipelines for the education sector and deploying talent to the highest impact interventions;
Providing tools and resources for parents to help them advocate for higher quality school options and place their children in the best-fit school; and,
Building awareness among leaders in business and government about the conditions that enable quality schools and advocating for the institutionalization of those conditions in state and local policy.

Beyond strategically deploying financial capital, The Opportunity Trust works to ensure the success of each fund in four ways:

Identifying what is working and amplifying the impact of those organizations and leaders;
Identifying and supporting entrepreneurs with local ties to fulfill unmet needs;
Connecting organizations to each other and to resources nationally and locally; and,
Coordinating and supporting the rigorous evaluation of current approaches and advocating for evidence-based local and state policy changes.
