Mission Statement

The ultimate goal that guides all of RISPE’s work is to improve outcomes for all students in Rhode Island’s urban public schools by diversifying the teacher pipeline, promoting the use of anti-racist pedagogy, and preparing teachers for success with high-quality clinical experiences. We use proven best practices and the real-time feedback of the educators and district partners we work with to provide responsive, relevant, and supportive programming in our pursuit of highly-effective, equitable education for all students.

Description

The Rhode Island School for Progressive Education (RISPE) is Rhode Island’s newest educator preparation provider and the first institution of higher education in the state to be founded with the express mission of diversifying Rhode Island’s teacher workforce and promoting anti-racist education. RISPE received unanimous approval from the Rhode Island Council on Postsecondary Education in March 2019. As of spring 2021, RISPE runs a PK-12 ESL Certification Program and is poised to launch three alternative certification programs (in Elementary, Secondary Math, and Secondary Science Education) over the next year, pending RIDE approval. RISPE’s plans for the future include the launch of two residency-style degree programs: an MAT with dual certification in Elementary and ESL Education and an MEd in Urban School Leadership with a Building Level Administrator certification.
