State Education Agencies as Agents of Change

Online registration for this event is closed. Walk-in registrations may be accepted.

Please note this event is taking place at the Center for American Progress.


With recent state and federal legislation promoting school reform, the role of state education agencies has grown, yet the agencies are still shrouded in mystery. How many people do they employ? How big are their budgets? Little is known about the makeup of these agencies, and even less is known about their leaders. What obstacles do they face? How do successful chiefs push aggressively for change and what resources do they need? What role can policymakers, foundations, and other reformers play?

Join us for a discussion tackling these mounting questions, as former and current chiefs will share firsthand knowledge of the limitations facing state education agencies and steps they have taken to overcome these challenges. The Center for American Progress in partnership with AEI will release a report with perhaps the most extensive examination of state education agencies since the mid-1990s, featuring excerpts from in-depth interviews with thirteen former or current agency chiefs from around the country.
