National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE)

NCEE, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC, believes that almost everyone can learn far more and develop far higher skills than most of us have thought possible. NCEE’s work is focused primarily on standards-based reform.NCEE believes that education and training systems work best when clear standards - standards that match the highest in the world – are set for student achievement; accurate measures of progress against those standards are devised; and the people closest to the students are given the authority for figuring out how to get the students to the standards and are then held accountable for student progress. NCEE concentrates on helping states and localities build the capacity to design and implement their own education and training systems, suited to their history, culture and unique needs. Their website includes information about their areas of focus, including research, policy forums and training opportunities. Specific content areas featured online include school design, school leadership and workforce development. Their online bookstore offers textbooks and curriculum related to their areas of focus.
