The Center for Research on Equity and Innovation brings together practitioners, researchers and youth to address complex problems of practice in K-12 education and create more equitable, engaging learning environments for all students. We use improvement science, design thinking and appreciative inquiry to support networks of educators in disrupting predictable patterns of success and failure, redesigning the systems/practices that perpetuate them, and learning from each other. Whether you join one of our networked improvement communities, attend one of our institutes,  or simply use our tools, our goal is to support schools in building a culture of continuous improvement, while making measurable progress on the issues you care about most.
