About Education Evolving

Education Evolving is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization focused on improving American public education.

Our vision is that student-centered learning opportunities exist for ALL young people in Minnesota and around the country, in particular those who have been underserved by the current education system.

Our theory of change envisions this will be the case when teachers have larger professional roles designing and running schools, and when policy serves to enable and encourage innovations in learning.

Our Work

We convene networks of innovators in education, and do policy research, analysis, and advocacy.

In recent years, collaborative teacher leadership has been a major area of focus for us. We believe that teachers, knowing their students’ unique needs, must be designers and deciders—in schools where they have full authority as a professional group to make the decisions that matter for student and school success.

Our Legacy

EE’s people have a long history of making change in public education. They helped to write the nation’s first public school choice and charter school laws in Minnesota, and have assisted with such laws in more than 20 other states. They helped bring technology and blended learning to the forefront of the education policy discussion. And, they worked on the structure of the nation’s first formally-organized teacher partnership (i.e. teacher-led) schools.
