About the National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER)

The Wyoming School-University Partnership is a member of the National Network for Educational Renewal (NNER), the national organization working to simultaneously improve the quality of education for citizens of our democracy and the quality of preparation of educators for our schools. 

In addition to the national-level of the organization, the NNER is comprised of many state- or local-level partnerships including the Wyoming School-University Partnership.  This network of partnerships creates an environment of progressive thinking and momentum for change.

The NNER leads by example in its commitment to improve simultaneously the quality of education for citizens of our democracy and the quality of preparation of educators for our schools through partnerships with the Institution of Higher Education and the Local Education Agency.

NNER's Four Fundamental Beliefs:

  1. We are all responsible for the improving the realities of our schools, universities, and communities.
  2. We believe that all students, regardless of race, poverty, geography, or any other circumstance, deserve equal access to high quality learning and enriching life experiences.
  3. We believe deep, enduring teaching and learning occurs can truly only occur when students are both loved and challenged.
  4. By embracing our 1) shared responsibility to schools, 2) working toward equal access to high quality learning for all students, and 3) teaching from a place that loves and challenges students, we find what inspires us most– 4) educating and preparing students to fully engage as considerate and critical citizens who know their value and capacity to make a profound impact in this world.
