Center for Urban Education


The Center for Urban Education (CUE) aims to sustain conditions for K-12 communities that encourage collaboration, and sponsor new dialogues focused on the meaning of scholarship and the experience of school-university engagements. These conditions begin with the axiom between research and practice: that the fundamental role of education in the twenty-first century is to synthesize reading-to learn development at the student level with evidence-based decision making at the teacher level to inform a sound, fully-functional knowledge base at the professional level and beyond. The University of Pittsburgh's School of Education has set the pace among peer institutions for research, teaching, and education reform, and the CUE serves alongside its most important school liaisons to the regional K-12 educational community, providing a scholarship of application, discovery, and integration, and leading initiatives in urban education research, training, and practice designed to determine what kinds of evidence-driven methodologies might now be explored and developed.
