“This place is really special. There’s something to learn here that I don’t know that you'll be able to see anywhere else.”

The Progressive Education Institute aspires to reinvent urban teacher preparation. We emphatically embrace the philosophy of progressive education while understanding the day-to-day challenges of urban school reform. Our dream is to share our obsession with exquisite instruction while working with urgency and accountability for student learning.

We believe that becoming a great teacher is not about acquiring a set of techniques to be copied and repeated. It’s about developing a deep understanding of learning theory, child development, content knowledge, and pedagogical content knowledge that can be applied in any instructional situation. That understanding comes at the intersection of observation, study, practice, reflection, and revision – all within the context of a collaborative teaching community. Learn More.
