The Partnership for Educational Revitalization in the Americas (PREAL) is a joint project of the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, DC, and the Corporation for Development Research (CINDE) in Santiago, Chile.
Since its founding in 1995, PREAL has improved the quality and equity of education by helping public and private sector organizations throughout the hemisphere promote informed debate on education policy, identify and disseminate best practices, and monitor progress toward improvement. PREAL strengthens the capacity of businesses and members of civil society to work with governments to improve education. It pursues this goal through three objectives:
- Involve civil society in education reform;
- Monitor progress toward improving education; and
- Enrich the thinking of decision-makers and opinion leaders on education policy.
The PREAL Blog is just one of the many ways the organization works to achieve these objectives. Additional programs include national and regional report cards on education progress, partnerships with national education organizations throughout the region, a Business-Education Alliance to promote public-private partnerships for education, working groups on specific education topics such as school management and the teaching profession, workshops and events, and a variety of publications. We invite you to learn more about PREAL and its programs by visiting our home page, preal.org.
PREAL’s activities are made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the GE Foundation, the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA), the World Bank, and others.
