The Israel Center for Educational Innovation (ICEI) helps turn around underachieving Israeli elementary schools, with high concentrations of students from the Ethiopian immigrant community. The ICEI program creates a school culture of success and high expectations.
ICEI Initiatives are anchored in a proven and innovative balanced literacy program and an extensive outreach effort to Ethiopian parents.
ICEI's unique professional support and technical assistance for teachers and principals upgrade teaching and strengthen school management.
The results are consistent improvement in student achievement levels, for Ethiopian and non-Ethiopian students alike. ICEI also empowers Ethiopian-Israeli parents to become full partners in their children's education and infuses participating schools with respect for Ethiopian-Jewish culture.
