Socrates - Head of School is a group of educators and industry leaders looking to transform professional development for teachers and administrators. We use the lens of questioning to generate thought provoking professional development through our Open Educational Resource as well as more comprehensive resources through our partnerships. We are distilling the books of thought leaders to curate the most meaningful ways we can move education forward so that children have more positive and productive learning experiences.
