The Harvard Graduate School of Education is launching an education leadership program that will be taught by scholars from the university’s schools of education, business, and government.

The three-year “doctor of education leadership” program, which will begin in August 2010, will be free thanks to a $10 million grant from the New York City-based Wallace Foundation. (The foundation underwrites coverage of leadership in Education Week.) It is expected to enroll 25 students per year.

The program is designed to prepare leaders to run not only school districts, but nonprofit organizations, private groups, and government agencies. In their third year, students will serve a residency with a partner organization, which could be a district, school-reform group, or entrepreneurial organization.
