Welcome to the Education Reform Networks

The National Institute for Community Innovations, in collaboration with a growing number of internationally recognized expert communities in educational reform, has developed national networks of leaders skilled in assisting schools, districts, preparation programs and large-scale educational systems to plan and undertake sustained educational reform efforts with regard to the reform dimensions below. Each of these networks has identified exemplary, free and inexpensive professional development materials about proven and promising reform strategies and resources in a given reform dimension. The networks' EdReform portals are central to NICI's vision of " responsive dissemination and responsive technical assistance".
