Welcome to The Community Institute for Education

The Institute draws together a group of people from all walks of life and takes what seem like overwhelming obstacles in education and figures out how we, in our various roles and responsibilities in life, can shape policy towards a more just education system for everyone. 

  • The Institute inspires and equips participants from local communities and organizations to help shape education policy towards justice for all families and children. 
  • Institute participants come from all walks of life and gather together to learn and develop a framework for evaluating and shaping education policies and reform efforts. 
  • Participants take this framework and these skills back into their local communities, catalyzing local activity to help achieve systemic change for the good of all.
