Our Core Values

At CEL, we hold these core values about how we work:


We value proven science but also seek creative solutions to meet the growing challenges in the education space. We constantly innovate, reflect and evolve based on what we learn, and empower educators to do the same.


We believe that people working together can create a greater impact than any one individual or organization can accomplish alone. We strive to become a learning community where all stakeholders can jointly identify problems and develop solutions for the education space.


We believe that effective learners are curious about the future, willing to ask tough questions, and committed to learning and deeper understanding. We seek to embrace this quality and inspire others to do the same.


Our work is driven by compassion and concern for the students, educators and the society at large. We seek to deeply understand and respond compassionately to the systemic challenges in the education space and beyond.

Diversity, Equity
and Inclusion

We seek to model the fairness and justice that we want to see in the world. We believe that successful schools and organizations should be structured to value the perspectives and meet the needs of all people.


We value openness, honesty, and accountability. We resolve to build an open-source learning culture where we openly share, collaborate and create with people outside our organization.
