The CQE leads strategic campaigns that integrate our strengths in community organizing, research, legal and policy advocacy to achieve equitable and just education policies.

Policy Innovators in Education (PIE)
The mission of the PIE Network, an organization founded by four leading education policy groups, is to build, support and promote a network of education advocacy organizations working to improve K-12 education in their states and the nation.

PIE recognizes that states are crucial actors in education reform and that civic organizations bring essential voices to the education policymaking process in their state capitals. The PIE Network supports these vital organizations in their efforts to raise learning expectations, close achievement gaps, increase accountability and transparency, ensure teacher quality, advance public school choice, and increase the sense of urgency to improve K-12 education.
