The Foundation for Excellence in EducationÂ is a leading think-tank in the world of education reform. Leaders associated with the organization include former Secretary of StateÂ CondoleezzaÂ Rice and formerÂ Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education Joel Klein.
Recently, ExcelInEd launched three online courses – self-paced and free – on education policy. I have taken two of the three courses and benefited from the videos and assigned readings.
The first course wasÂ Securing Our Nation’s Future: The Urgent Need For Education Reform
A main reading resource: Turn and Face the Strain
The second class wasÂ Data Privacy? Get Schooled.
The third class is Communications Boot CampÂ Winning the Ed Reform Conversation
A main reading resource:Â 5 Essential Habits of the Network’s Top Communicators
All of these courses are highly informative and worth taking. Best of all, Â these courses are student-paced so you can fit it around your schedule and get access to great information free of charge.
