The Network for Public Education was founded in 2013 by Diane Ravitch and Anthony Cody. This advocacy group has a mission to preserve, promote, improve and strengthen public schools for both current and future generations of students.
The goal of NPE is to connect all those who are passionate about our schools – students, parents, teachers and citizens. They share information and research on vital issues that concern the future of public education at a time when it is under attack.

The mission of the National Education Policy Center is to produce and disseminate high-quality, peer-reviewed research to inform education policy discussions. We are guided by the belief that the democratic governance of public education is strengthened when policies are based on sound evidence.
Our senior academic staff members include nationally recognized education researchers, writers, and practitioners whose experience ensures the quality, timeliness, and value of the work NEPC does. Please feel free to contact staff members about topics of interest to you. Please feel free to reach out to any of our staff for more information.
