Our Team

Lennart Reymann
Lennart ReymannFounder - Austria
With a scientific background in International Development and Communication Science, Lennart Reymann started as a Teach For Austria Fellow at the prevocational school “Im Zentrum” in 2014. In 2015 he initiated a project class, focused on language acquisition in an extracurricular setting that opened up possibilities for teaching and learning previously thought unthinkable. In doing so he realized that change is possible within Austrian schools today. However, to enable all schools in Austria to work as learning organisms and in order to move forward towards educational justice, he believes that the organizational level must be changed. Co-founding Framework Education was his way of tackling this issue.

“We’re not going to save this planet and ourselves by perfecting the old education systems we have in place now.  We must reimagine education, grounded in the vision and values of students and families who are experiencing those systems.  I’m inspired by FrEdu’s efforts to ask the hard questions of WHY and WHO as a means of unleashing educators’ leadership toward reimagining education.”
