National Organizations & Programs

  • National Associations / Advocacy
    • Achieving the Dream:  Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count is a multiyear national initiative to help more community college students succeed. The initiative is particularly concerned about student groups that traditionally have faced significant barriers to success, including students of color and low-income students. Achieving the Dream works on multiple fronts, including efforts at community colleges and in research, public engagement and public policy. It emphasizes the use of data to drive change.
    • Afterschool.org:  The Afterschool.org website is for afterschool program directors who want to improve the quality of their programs. All sorts of other people will find it useful, too--people like program staff, volunteers, parents, community members, policymakers, funders, researchers, and anyone else who cares about children.  As part of the website, Promising Practices in Afterschool (or "PPAS")  is an effort to find and share things that are working in afterschool programs.
    •  Catapult Learning: Serving K-12 children who struggle with academics.

  • National Network for Educational Renewal:   The NNER is a membership network (see the governance page for membership information) dedicated to the simultaneous renewal of schools and the institutions that prepare our teachers. Our work is based on the four-part mission of providing equal access to quality learning for all students, promoting responsible stewardship of our schools and universities, improving teaching and learning through pedagogy that nurtures and challenges all learners, and providing students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become fully engaged participants in our democratic society. John Goodlad refers to the NNER as the proofing sites for the ongoing research and inquiry conducted by the Institute for Educational Inquiry.
