OUR THEORY of ACTION
A Shared Vision:
CIE's vision is that all learners will be able to find and fulfill their full potential - to become engaged and productive citizens ready to succeed in a changing world. We believe that the public good is served by raising the bar of expectations for individual learners, for professional educators, and for the education system itself.
Support state efforts to test and scale innovations in policy, practice and structure that realign resources and human capacity throughout all levels of the system around the new goal of supporting every child to success in college, career and citizenship.
Theory of Action:
CIE will pursue that mission by bringing together leaders from the state and local levels to bridge the policy and practice gap in ways that build coherence and accelerate implementation toward the outcomes we seek.
Our Goals for Young People
What are our learning goals for young people? What is the new True North?
What conditions will enable that future? For students? For educators? For policymakers?
How do we help learning communities make the transition from systems of schooling to systems for learning?
Learning experiences should integrate thinking, feeling and action in order to build the full suite of cognitive and non-cognitive skills, especially the life skills needed for life-long learning and collaboration with others in a diverse society.
