For 35 years, the Education Research & Development Institute (ERDI) has proudly convened top thought leaders from across the United States to inform and influence the products and services that support PK-12 education. Institutes are framed around top problems of practice and three primary design anchors: meaningful engagement; rich professional learning; and a strong community that supports and celebrates those committed to improving the lives of children through public education. We continue to ask the following essential questions:
- How do we champion the formation of a strong, positive public education identity?
- How do we comprehensively develop and equip students to capably lead our country for future generations?
- How do we ensure equity and access to high quality learning environments for all students?
ERDI institutes provide a unique forum for those invested in education to learn from one another and to discuss and tackle the issues facing districts across the country. As thought and practice leaders representing diverse facets of the education sector, we have a collective duty to advocate for and champion the best interests of students, educators, parents, and communities.
