Aspen Institute's picture

Aspen Institute 

The Aspen Institute Education and Society Program (Aspen Education) improves public education by inspiring, informing and influencing education leaders across policy and practice, with an emphasis on achieving equity for traditionally under-served students. Aspen Education supports leaders at all levels – from networks of urban superintendents and their teams, to state chiefs and their cabinets, to elected officials and their staffers. By providing venues for authentic learning and honest dialogue, and producing a range of resources and tools, Aspen Education assists education leaders in building, implementing, and continuously improving policy and practice. Our engagement with the practical challenges of advancing education reform enables us to inform and shape education reform well beyond the sites with which we have direct involvement. The networks serve as R&D sites for our tool development as well as policy development, enabling us to serve the field in more far-reaching ways.
