Welcome to the Institute of Progressive Education and Learning (i-pel) website. This website was designed and written to support our education research & analysis programs and implementation activities. For a look at our current projects go to i-pel Projects. Our K-12 education services, Our Services, will evolve in support of these objectives as well.
The site is a precise look at the evolution of K-12 education. With over 50 categories and over 600 images it is a helpful contemporary reference and resource for curriculum developers, publishers, educational game designers, school administrators, teachers, parents and students. As a definitive work this website contains a wealth of information about the K-12 education industry as well as helpful links to other source material and educational organizations (see Resources). Our Articles section contains many published articles which are related to our education categories and our i-pel blog section contains i-pel original articles and reader comments.
