LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN
I would like to welcome and introduce you to EI1.
EI1 is an organization of, by and for Educators dedicated to raising educational performance and advancing educational excellence in America. EI1 is an Educator’s Education Initiative.
This community we call “Education” has long had a history of achievement and a culture of excellence and plays a vital role in our nation’s strength, security and technological superiority, but in order to continue doing so, Education must evolve to reflect our changing world. We believe that the Education community, that Educators, must take a proactive role in that evolution; to become directly engaged in the design, development and the practice of teaching and learning.
To achieve that end, a coalition of Educators joined together to look to the future of Education in America in the 21st century. With the collaboration of key participants from K-12 Education, business professionals and stakeholders, we undertook a program to better understand how Education might evolve and to find viable and sustainable solutions that would move Education forward. Our “mission” is to search out and sponsor the development and sustainable implementation of revolutionary and evolutionary concepts and research; to bridge the gap between fundamental discoveries and their application to the general profession of Education.
EI1 is the product of that effort, and is based on the principle that Education is America’s most important and essential industry and that simply maintaining it is no longer acceptable!
To paraphrase George Bernard Shaw:
“Some see things as they are and say “Why?” Others see things as they could be and say “Why not?”
We offer the following for your consideration.
