One of the nation?s largest local education funds, the Los Angeles Educational Partnership — at the forefront of the school reform movement locally and nationwide for almost 20 years — has changed its name to Urban Education Partnership, announced President and CEO Susan Way-Smith. “Due to our national reach and depth of expertise in urban education, we wanted a simple, straightforward name that describes what we do,” Way-Smith said. “We believe the name Urban Education Partnership reflects our values and commitment to making a positive difference in America’s urban schools.” Founded in 1984, Urban Education Partnership has had a long and impressive history of developing, testing and implementing effective teaching and learning strategies. Its mission is to help
students in high-need schools improve their academic achievement by partnering with educators, parents and the community.
