On June 22, 2011 President Bush visited the first class of future principals training at the new ED-Entrepreneur Center (EEC), a member of the Bush Institute’s Alliance to Reform Education Leadership (AREL). EEC represents the collaborative efforts of an education school (SMU’s Simmons College of Education and Human Development), a business school (SMU’s Cox School of Business), a charter-school network (Uplift Education), a reform-oriented nonprofit (the Teaching Trust), and a traditional public-school district (Dallas ISD), all of which have come together to design a highly interactive, job-embedded program.
