The Center for Educational Innovation (CEI) is a nonprofit education organization located in New York City. A recognized leader in advancing meaningful reforms in public education, CEI’s mission is to make the school the center and driving force of public education reform and innovation. We work directly with teachers, school leaders, and the community to create the schools their children need to succeed. Our vision is to help build a public education system where every child has access to an excellent school. To that end, we provide support services and programs for public schools as well as online communications to inform the general public about what is going on in our public schools and how we can all help build excellence in public education.

“Children don’t attend a public educational system, they go to school. That is why the school must be the center of change”

- Sy Fliegel, CEI President & Gilder Senior Fellow
