Our Work

At the Center on Reinventing Public Education, we research classrooms, schools, and systems to identify the systemic barriers to equity and excellence for every student and ways to overcome them. We see around the corner, reach across traditional party and sector lines, and craft solutions to problems few have anticipated.

Since March 2020, CRPE has been the go-to source for high-quality research about the threats to student success and equity posed by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the innovations that have emerged out of the crisis.
