Communities for Excellent Public Schools (CEPS) is a newly formed coalition supported by 24 local, state and national parent and community organizing groups across the country. CEPS has launched a national campaign calling for dramatic action to improve low performing schools by emphasizing parent, student and community engagement and research-based educational practices. CEPS coalition marked the launch of a new national campaign for education reform in July 2010 with the release of a report analyzing federal policies to improve the nation’s lowest performing schools. Hazen’s $45,000 grant in 2010 will support a national adult-led organizing alliance designed to impact federal education policy.
