The Center for Community Organizing and Engagement

The Center for Community Organizing and Engagement provides support to urban communities in their struggles for school improvement. Our work is inspired by the belief that sustainable and equitable school reforms emerge when the voices of students, parents, and teachers are combined with the best ideas and research to meet the challenges of struggling schools.

Through policy research, educational data analysis, training, facilitation, coordination, support for strategy development, and logistical support, we help youth, parent, and community education organizing groups develop sufficient power to improve the quality of education in low-performing school districts.
