The Broad Residency 2019-2021


Families shouldn't need luck or money to gain access to a quality school. Turning around low-performing schools has the potential to provide that access to high-quality educational options at scale.

Jonathan Tugman is the chief of staff at Purpose Built Schools Atlanta, a nonprofit operating four turnaround schools in partnership with Atlanta Public Schools. He supports a variety of strategic efforts, including building the schools’ instructional framework, expanding their talent strategy and managing the organization’s strategic planning. Prior to joining The Broad Residency, Jonathan was a project leader at the Boston Consulting Group in its education practice, where he managed a variety of projects for PK-12 and higher education organizations. Jonathan also served as the director of finance and operations for Green Dot Public Schools Tennessee, where he helped launch the first high school turnaround in the state and spent a summer at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In Atlanta, he sits on the boards of Drew Charter School and the State Charter School Foundation. Jonathan holds an master’s of business administration from The Wharton School, where he graduated as a Palmer Scholar, and an M.S.Ed. in education policy from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa with highest distinction and highest honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a bachelor’s in business administration and Economics.
