Schools of Influence Education Foundation (SOIEF) exists to develop empowering educational opportunities for learners, teachers, citizens, and schools.  We sponsor charter schools and other educational programs for children with limited options, and  we foster education research.  Schools of Influence Education Foundation values trust-based relationships as the heart of genuine education.  We believe that intentionally cultivating accountable leadership in all stakeholders of the system of public education increases the human and social resources available to us all.
