The Broad Academy 2015-2016


As chief executive officer of The Chicago Public Education Fund, Heather Young Anichini raised $20 million to address the challenges facing the country’s third largest public-school system. These investments will double the number of high-performing principals in Chicago by 2018, impacting one in every three Chicago students. To magnify the impact of the city’s best principals, Anichini, a native Chicagoan and former Chicago Public Schools teacher, helped launch Breakthrough Schools: Chicago, a local-national partnership designed to enable top educators to lead the transformation to 21st-century schools.
