REVIEW:
The National Foundation for the Improvement of Education (NFIE) wants to improve the state of education but it takes a different approach than a lot of other reformers. "To improve schools we must focus on the teachers," said Judith Rnyi, Executive Director neafoundation. "Schools can only be as good as the teachers in them. This is something that all other so-called 'reform efforts' have missed. It's what teachers know and can do that will make the difference in improved student performance." With that in mind, this site was created to showcase the projects, reports and ideas currently supported by the organization. Topics include: NFIE's mission, strategies and history, teaching and technology, funding opportunities, school projects and programs, and ideas for the future. The empahsis may be on teachers, but everyone interested in education reform can learn something here.
