About the Partnership for Public Education

Vision

The Partnership for Public Education (PPE) is a University-wide initiative stemming from the commitment of the College of Education and Human Development and the College of Arts and Sciences to public education.  PPE is inspired by a vision of excellence and equity in public education for all Delaware children and families.  Its work is grounded in the belief that research, practice, family, and community should all be invested in systematic improvement of educational opportunities and outcomes and that this goal can only be achieved through meaningful collaboration and cooperation.

Mission

The mission of PPE is to bring-together members of the University of Delaware and the broader Delaware educational community—including educators, families, and leaders of community organizations—to identify shared needs and opportunities and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and resources for the betterment of public education.  PPE will mobilize the University’s research, professional learning, policy and advocacy, and student resources to address critical issues facing schools and foster sustainable partnership work.  To improve the quality and availability of education for all students PPE will prioritize our most underserved communities and seek to improve educational opportunities and outcomes from early childhood through post-secondary access.

Who We Are
