ASCD has been learning, teaching, and leading beyond boundaries since 1943, when we began as an influential education organization built for educators, by educators. We have tackled controversial issues and policies, established ourselves as an educational thought leader, and expanded our professional development expertise worldwide. As technology evolved, we harnessed new tools to advance best practices. Today, our advocacy efforts and initiatives reflect ASCD's enduring commitment to bring quality education to all children and promote the success of each learner, as we engage diverse educators, develop professional development resources, and promote whole child education.
