Fortune School of Education, established in 1989, provides preparation programs to fill the “pipeline” of educators needed in today’s schools. It was the brainchild of Dr. Rex Fortune, who as a school superintendent, saw an opportunity to bring more diverse teaching candidates into public schools, especially in the shortage areas of science and mathematics instruction.
Understanding the unique needs of teachers, students and the wider school system was something Dr. Fortune honed throughout his career. He served as a public school superintendent in California for over 20 years. Fortune holds a doctorate in education from Stanford University.
It’s the culmination of Dr. Fortune’s extensive experience and expertise that has created the exceptional graduate school now known as Fortune School of Education.
