ExcelinEd invites you to join us in an exciting initiative as we attempt to reinvent the ways in which parents and other stakeholders consume and use school information!
Too many students are shuffled through school, promoted to the next grade without building the fundamental skills of reading. Reading is not just a subject; it is the foundation for all learning.
As demographics shift, America will see communities and schools transitioning to a majority of minority students and their success is inextricably linked to the well-being of our nation.
I applaud our partners at the U.S. Chamber for consistently keeping education at the forefront of the business community, recognizing the influence of our nation’s employers in improving education.
This November, the Foundation for Excellence in Education will host its fifth annual National Summit on Education Reform, in Washington, DC.

Nobody likes the feeling of failure, and that sinking feeling is only magnified when you know a classroom full of 14-year olds are staring up at you, suffering from your failure.
The Florida A-F school grading system has been a powerful evaluation tool since its inception in 1999.
