School Districts and State Education Systems

“The community's public school is the greatest discovery - and the cornerstone - of our democratic society.”
- Horace Mann

The 8th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States provides for the education of its citizens through local control in each of the States. It is thus important that the base of our work with State and Local Education Agencies (SEAs and LEAs) is rooted in access, equity, and opportunity for all populations, especially vulnerable or "at-risk" populations.

We provide assessment services, technical assistance, and policy strategies to these agencies. This assistance is designed to assist in carrying out the mission of preparing students and citizens to learn, work, and thrive in our nation's 21st century schools.
