Learning Innovations (LI) works with education and social service agencies to promote excellence, achieve equity and justice, and enhance outcomes for children, youth, and adults.

We support clients to build the relationships, capacity, knowledge, and skills to be successful and achieve outcomes.

LI provides technical assistance and evaluation/research services in many areas, including educator evaluation, special education, assessment, school improvement, health, criminal and social justice, dual language programs, and Common Core State Standards.

We lead research studies on teen pregnancy prevention, on interventions for homeless ex-prisoners, on urban violence prevention, and on teacher development.

The above services, along with our direct technical assistance to education and social service agencies, are leading to the increased use of more effective and evidence-based practice.

Through the Northeast Regional Comprehensive Center, we help state education agencies implement educator evaluation systems, the Common Core State Standards, and systems of support for underperforming schools.

For the Region II Equity Assistance Center, we consult with school districts to promote equity and justice.

LI also leads two research alliances and conduct research for the Regional Educational Laboratory Northeast & Islands.

Through these major initiatives, LI informs policy and practice in nine northeastern states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
