The mission of the Center for Collaborative Education (CCE) is to transform schools to ensure that all students succeed. We believe that schools should prepare every student to achieve academically and make a positive contribution to a democratic society. CCE envisions a just and equitable world where every student is college- and career-ready and prepared to become a compassionate, thoughtful and contributing global citizen. To achieve this vision, CCE works at the school, district and state levels in New England and beyond to:

Create, support and sustain learning environments that are collaborative, democratic and equitable;

Build capacity within districts and schools to adopt effective practices that promote collaborative, democratic and equitable learning for students and educators; and

Catalyze systemic change at the school and district levels through district-and state-level policy, research, and advocacy

Vision of Our Schools

The Center for Collaborative Education seeks to influence the larger public’s view on education to better support change that fosters democratic and equitable schools. CCE seeks to create autonomous and flexible schools in which:
•Equity and diversity are embedded in all practices,
•Teaching and learning are purposeful, challenging, and have value beyond school,
•Assessment demonstrates the competence of students in multiple ways,
•Students and teachers know each other well,
•Democratic values are nurtured and modeled,
•Decisions are made as close to the learner as possible, and
•Collaborative practices improve teaching and learning.
