The AED Center for School and Community Services has applied decades of research to pioneering successful approaches to school reform. It has also evaluated--and helped to advance--some of the most exciting initiatives in American education. In the tradition of AED, the Center defines "education" broadly. Recognizing the interdependence of many players in effective education, the Center mobilizes partnerships to create and sustain deep change in school systems and youth programs. It is committed to fostering life-long learning and development in schools, youth centers, clinics, workplaces, and communities. This work encompasses more than 125 programs in 40 states. The core services of the Center for School and Community Services are: (1) Designing and managing comprehensive educational reform and community improvement initiatives; (2) Evaluating school and community improvement programs; (3) Conducting research on critical issues in education, health, youth services, and community development; (4) Providing technical assistance to schools and community-based programs; and (5) Fostering the capacity of schools and community programs to undertake ongoing self-assessment geared to program improvement and increased student learning. This report gives a brief description of 7 collaborative projects.
