The Center for Educational Transformation (CET) is a collaborative designed to transform PreK-12 education in Iowa and nationwide by conducting and disseminating research on emerging and critical education issues. The CET builds capacity for improved student learning and teacher effectiveness; informs local, state, and national decision makers; and drives education policy. By developing partnerships, researching, and disseminating the results, the CET seeks to ensure an education culture where every child is able to engage and thrive. The Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust has provided two years of funding to help establish the CET.
