Each year, TheBestSchools.org celebrates the legendary teacher Jaime Escalante and his principal champion, Henry Gradillas, by awarding $28,000 in total prizes to three educators who exemplify the non-nonsense, uncompromising academics, and do-more-with-less standards of Escalante and Gradillas. For 2017, we recognize school administrators, those leaders like Gradillas who make it possible for teachers to change students' lives.

Today, we're naming El Paso, Texas, superintendent José Espinoza the 2017 winner of the $20,000 Escalante–Gradillas Prize for Best in Education. For all the details of José's win and his impressive accomplishments, and to find out more about the second and third place honorees, see our page here:
