Improving schools empowering neighborhoods
Home > Center for I.E.

Also known as IE, the Center for Innovative Education was created by John Holcomb and Mike McGalliard and is the origin of LA's Promise. Launched in 2003, IE's mission was to design significant programmatic, instructional and cultural changes in low performing high schools to bring about a successful turnaround. IE focused its work on teachers in order to build their entrepreneurial capacity.

We are pleased to announce that the Center for i.e. will now reside online as a resource for educators. This section will be home to an education reform knowledge base, issue papers published periodically by LA's Promise staff members, and a showcase for LA's Promise’s Teacher Innovation Grants.

This section is still under construction.
