Schools for Children is proud to announce the launch of the National Institute for Student-Centered Education (NISCE). NISCE is interested in promoting a broad national dialogue on the importance of committing to more ‘student-centered educational’ practices in what is an increasingly ‘standards-based’ world. We will partner with educators, parents, administrators and students who are interested in actively supporting practices that encourage and support each student to realize his/her best personal qualities as a member of a school community.
