Education Alliance for Equity and Excellence in the Nation's Schools

The Education Alliance at Brown University is a reform support organization committed to advancing equitable educational opportunities that prepare all student populations to succeed in the 21st century. Our mission is to enhance learning for culturally and linguistically diverse students. We build partnerships with communities and educational organizations to apply research and transform instructional practice. We design and deliver expert services around data collection and analysis, professional learning, and research evaluations.

Since 1975, we have partnered with schools, districts and state departments of education to apply research finding in developing solutions to educational challenges. We focus on district and school improvement with special attention to underperformance and issues of equity and diversity.

The Education Alliance operates The New England Equity Assistance Center (NEEAC), a program that helps states, districts, and public schools plan and implement policies and practices that promote access to high-quality education for all students. This is one of ten regional centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education under Title IV of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to provide training and technical assistance on education issues related to race, gender, and national origin. At the request of state or district officials, partnerships are formed with schools to find solutions to a variety of equity problems. This work aims to close persistent achievement gaps, to promote safe schools, and to help all students reach high standards. 

 The Executive Director of The Education Alliance is Dr. Maria Pacheco.
