Our Theory of Action
When K–12 leaders, mission-driven organizations, and innovative thought leaders convene to tackle public education’s most pressing issues, their community approach to problem-solving results in effective, sustainable solutions.
Meet the instructional, organizational, and thought leaders who partner with us.
Our SummitsIEI Summits bring together instructional leaders, solution providers, and edtech investors to develop effective, sustainable solutions to real-world, right-now issues in K–12 public education.
Due to Covid-19, we transitioned our summits to regional, hybrid events with virtual and on-site attendees. The health and safety of our members and guests are crucial but work still needs to be done, even more now than ever.

Elizabeth (Liz) and Bill James are public high school English teachers in Stockton, California. They are both accomplished authors and are promoting their most recent publication, A Sea of Troubles: Pairing Literary and Informational Texts to Address Social Inequality, which was published in May of 2021. At the beginning of 2020, Liz and Bill started writing A Sea of Troubles and wrote the bulk of this book while in quarantine as the world was changing drastically around us all. We are so fortunate to have Liz and Bill on with us to discuss how they aim to show educators that the texts they are already using can be catalysts to dive into deeper discussions about social injustices that are happening today.
