Applying the Private Equity Model to K-12 Schools (With Great Results) - Dr. Gil Pereg, CEO of Darca Schools
Play • 43 min

What happens when you disrupt K-12 education by applying the private equity model to it?

Darca Schools, led by CEO Dr. Gil Pereg, are doing this very thing in Israel, with momentous beneficial impact on students in rural, peripheral, underperforming and underrepresented communities.

It's unusual to see the crossover between these two worlds: private equity and education. But Darca Schools brings these two together in a groundbreaking network of 45 schools that give vulnerable students from all sectors of society access to a high-quality education that leads to brighter futures and promotes social mobility. In this episode, you'll hear how common PE  practices like due diligence, removing inefficiencies, and setting up the right leadership have enabled Gil and his team to affect change in communities that have traditionally been written off as failure-bound.
