Closing the Gap Between Research and Practice
CEI Leads Schools to Excellence
The Center for Educational Improvement (CEI) provides leadership in identifying, sharing, and applying 21st century innovations in learning in the areas of rigor in the classroom, neuroscience, and Heart Centered Education (compassion, courage, confidence, consciousness, and community) and leadership. We conduct research studies to identify the most effective ways to implement evidence-based best practices to “fast track” academic progress as well as collaborate with other researchers, private companies, and government agencies to build more bridges to educational excellence. A focus is closing the gap between what is known about student achievement and what is practiced in schools. Established in 2010, CEI was bolstered by the support it received from the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), which continues to provide invaluable seed funding.
