Citing Lagging Progress, the Center for Education Reform Founder Issues Manifesto for Action

At the National Press Club in Washington, DC, the Founder and CEO of the nation’s most senior advocate and pioneer for education reform will issue a call for all engaged in leading education roles to reevaluate their work and forge a new commitment to innovation and opportunity across all education sectors and reforms.

Jeanne Allen’s remarks will be followed by reactions and comments from influential education, business and political leaders, including:

  • John Engler, President of the Business Roundtable and Former Governor of Michigan
  • David Levin, President and CEO of McGraw-Hill Education
  • Donald Hense, Chair and CEO of Friendship Public Charter Schools and Member, CER Board of Directors

This clarion call comes amidst a nation in educational jeopardy, faced with domestic and international turmoil and on the cusp of an important election.

"While progress has been made in the quarter century since the modern day education reform movement began, we have barely scratched the surface," said Allen.

A copy of the manifesto can be found on after the event.
