THE MISSION OF EDUCATION SYSTEMS CENTER IS TO SHAPE AND SUPPORT PUBLIC SYSTEMS THAT PREPARE MORE YOUNG PEOPLE FOR CAREERS IN A GLOBAL ECONOMY
At EdSystems we work to craft education policies and build programs that improve student outcomes throughout Illinois, across the United States and internationally. Our work is not to innovate within the classroom or school building-it is to bring education reform and innovation to scale.
EdSystems is dedicated to working with public and private sector organizations at the leading edge of education system reforms and innovations to better prepare students for opportunities in the global marketplace.
This multi-faceted work includes strategic counsel and support across various areas of education policy and practice, with a focus on education governance systems, effective use of data, instructional technology, and STEM education.
In addition to the work in the United States, EdSystems also supports education system reform and capacity building in partnership with Ministries of Education in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The work we do helps to bring education reform and innovation to scale and to create environments for change. EdSystems works in partnership with various other affiliates at Northern Illinois University, including:
