EL Education

Venture contracts with EL Education (EL) for professional development services associated with implementing a set of core practices for school design and development.  The organization provides professional development, curriculum planning resources, and school organizing structures that boost student engagement, character, and achievement. Schools involved with EL enjoy the benefit of thousands of colleagues with which to share best educational practices while keeping all curriculum decisions within the individual schools. EL core practices and resources enhance instruction and instill a positive school culture by emphasizing:

  • a rigorous and engaging curriculum;
  • an active, inquiry-based approach to teaching; and
  • a school culture that fosters respect, enthusiasm, collaboration, and the idea that with effort everyone can achieve more than they thought possible.
