OUR THEORY OF ACTION

If CPRL…

  • Prepares a diverse pool of students from multiple professional schools with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets to enact organizational learning and change
  • Provides affordable, high-quality research and consulting services to organizations committed to improving public education, particularly for children of color, from low-income households, or otherwise traditionally underserved
  • Empowers a broad network of elementary, secondary, and post-secondary educators and their stakeholders with ideas, tools, and practices designed to accelerate improvement and spread experiential learning;

Then CPRL will...

  • Strengthen the capacity of a wide array of professionals to improve public education
  • Intensify higher education’s role in improving public education and other public institutions
  • Increase the ability of education organizations and their leaders to learn, evolve, and improve themselves

As a result, CPRL will…

  • Expand access to high-quality education for all students—particularly those of color, from low-income households, or otherwise traditionally underserved
