Public schools are everybody’s business! That’s the main point of CEI’s advocacy work. In order to create and sustain excellence in public education, everyone—educators, parents, students, community organizations, businesses—needs to be informed about our public schools and how best to support them. We issue regular online communications about what is going on in our network of public schools to help inform stakeholders about effective practices, school priorities and how policies impact the real world of schools and classrooms.
