The Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE) was founded at the University of Washington in 1993. CRPE engages in independent research and policy analysis on a range of K–12 public education reform issues, including choice & charters, finance & productivity, teachers, urban district reform, leadership, and state & federal reform.

CRPE’s work is based on two premises: that public schools should be measured against the goal of educating all children well, and that current institutions too often fail to achieve this goal. Our research uses evidence from the field and lessons learned from other sectors to understand compli- cated problems and to design innovative and practical solutions for policymakers, elected officials, parents, educators, and community leaders.
