About the Institute for Education Innovation

Superintendents are defenders of our children’s right to high-quality public education and lead their teams toward effective, sustainable solutions to age-old problems. They must be at the centre of discussions around when, where, and how innovation will affect teaching and learning. Many education solution providers, funders, researchers, and thought leaders are mission-driven: they do what they do to improve student outcomes. The Institute for Education Innovation bridges gaps between the individuals and organizations committed to seeing students succeed in school and life, creating a safe space for constructive problem-solving and innovative thinking.
