Edwatch: Alliance to Reform Education Leadership

Organization Name: Alliance to Reform Education Leadership
Company Line: School principals are an integral part of the education workforce and as leaders, principals are uniquely positioned to improve schools. This initiative is building a network of principal training programs and highlighting policies that allow principals to become effective leaders. One goal of this initiative is to focus national, state and local reform efforts on leadership, because strong principals can help improve schools.
Bottom Line: Alliance to Reform Education Leadership (AREL) is a project of the Bush Center aka the Bush Institute aka The G. W. Bush Foundation. AREL focuses on placing hand-picked principals in our nation’s K-12 public schools through training networks across the country. AREL exemplary programs include: Gwinnett County Public Schools, Quality-Plus Leadership Academy and Aspiring Principal Program: Suwanee, Georgia; KIPP School Leadership Programs, headquartered in San Francisco, California
; New Leaders, headquartered in New York City, New York
, New York City Leadership Academy, headquartered in New York City, New York
; University of Illinois Chicago Ed.D. program Urban Education Leadership, Chicago, Illinois. These programs favor principal candidates who have little education credentials and endorse the education reform movement.

Major sponsors include AT&T, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Walton Family Foundation, Ford Motor Company, among others.

The website also contains a global report card that compares your school district with others around the world. Even though the foundation reports many employees making over $100,000 a year as of 2014, many aspects of AREL seem to have been abandoned in 2009 when George W. Bush left office.
