"An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people."
– Thomas Jefferson
Incubated at the National Academy of Sciences, SERP was founded in 2003 to bridge the worlds of education research, practice, and design. The organization is designed to provide the infrastructure to make a coherent and sustained research, development, and implementation program possible. SERP establishes long-term partnerships with school districts addressing critical problems of practice identified by the district partner. Accomplished researchers from leading universities are recruited to tackle multiple dimensions of the problem and user-centered design is incorporated to generate classroom friendly solutions. SERP products are made available to all districts.
