Six founders of NCEE’s Superintendents Alliance make the case for proficiency based education. Read more.

For more than six years, NCEE has partnered with the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) to provide advice and insights on the design of high-performing education systems to U.S. state legislators. Together, we organized the work of a study group of state legislators from across the country to investigate top-performing education systems around the world. The end result of that initial work was the landmark report, No Time to Lose: How to Build a World-Class Education System State by State.

NCEE, NCSL, and the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) convened a second cohort of the study group in 2020 to study the common components underpinning the design of high-performing education systems. A bipartisan group of 16 state legislators and eight legislative staff members responsible for education in their states are convening monthly to conduct their study and plan to produce a second major report to state legislators in the coming year.
