AED in the United States of America
Academy for Educational Development
The Academy for Educational Development's (AED's) work in the United States includes programs with many of the nation's major foundations on issues of education reform, parental involvement in the schools, youth development and bridging the distance between school, work, and successful university education. The projects described here cover a wide range of educational innovations, including efforts at middle- and high school reform, parent involvement, charter schools, service learning, and proven tools for school self-assessments. Ensuring that children with disabilities participate fully in school, work, and community life has been a special focus of our work, along with a commitment to early care and education for populations such as migrant workers and American Indians. In recognition of the critical role that teachers play in improving the educational outcomes of students at all levels, AED is also focusing considerable attention on efforts to transform university-based teacher preparation. The projects described are divided into the following categories: (1) Education; (2) Environment and Transportation; (3) Health; (4) Research & Evaluation; (5) Social Marketing, Communications, and Behavior Change; and (6) Youth Development. An index is included.
