The original No Excuses Campaign was launched in 1998. Since that time hundreds of thousands of people have studied the practices of the first No Excuses Schools to improve the quality of their teaching and create school cultures of lasting impact. Today, dozens of innovative school systems have emerged that proudly call themselves No Excuses Schools—rooted in the principles of these leading examples.

Carter Research is the name of the services company through which my team and I advance the current state of the education industry by studying best practice wherever it is found and helping others to innovate at scale.
