Our Mission:
To trade in the Old K-12 system for a Modern One that puts Teacher Career Advancement at the Top! 

Why Should I Care?
Under the Old K-12 System, every teacher is forced to work with no support, no guidance, no coaching and no concern for their well-being. 

We are building a modern educator community that includes: 365-Teacher Coaching, Personalized Online P.D., Private FB Group, and a Marketplace specifically for teachers.

About the Founder:
EDI was founded by expert NJ educator and thought leader, D.Scott Schwartz, M.Ed who has spent the last 20 years working with the most academically and behaviorally challenging students. Since 2013, over 50 school districts and close to 5000 educators have been relying on his knowledge and expertise when it comes to student challenges.

Situations Like:

  • ​Teaching Best Practices and Coaching
  • ​Bullying in School (Off-Campus)
  • ​Poor Student Grades
  • ​Classroom Behavioral Challenges
  • ​Class and schoolwide PBS programs
  • ​Grading Rubrics 
  • ​Curriculum Mapping for the 22nd Century

Are You Currently Receiving Little to No Support From Your District?

In 2014, nj.com featured D.Scott Schwartz's innovative "Teacher in Training Program," which changed the way school districts coached and helped novice teachers (less than 3 years experience), but since the Shutdown in March 2020, most school districts have abandoned those efforts.

Running for C.E.O. of American Schools

America Needs a 
Chief Education Officer
What Does a Chief Education Officer Do?
1. They solve National School Problems and Issues
2. They advocate for Teachers
3. They protect students from the system
4. They debate with Elected Leaders

Why Does America Need a C.E.O.?
1. Teachers have no time, no voice, doing too many things, and living and working in a chaotic environment
2. Administrators lack management experience and skills, are not actively listening to teachers or parents, making decisions based on their own "inner" voice, not achieving results, and panicking about poor results.
3. Our Elected Leaders are not connected to Teachers or Parents, act only for their own self-interests, display moments of incompetence, and  pander to the masses in order to get elected.

The Solution
The problems schools, teachers, and parents face are all solvable. It will not be easy. It will not take a month to solve. The solution requires time, massive coordination, and monumental leadership.

The solution requires One Person, a Chief Education Officer, who is willing to put in the hours, the sweat, and also deal with the frustration of a system that was created in the 19th Century that fails to meet the needs of 21st Century students.

This person cannot be the savior of American schools on their own. In order for the Chief Education Officer to be successful they will need massive public support. They will need 1 million teachers in America, who say, "Please Help Us!"

The Chief Education Officer will need 1 million parents who say "We want a better education for our kids!"

Picking the Right C.E.O. is Key!
Qualifications of a Great C.E.O.:
1. School-based experience
2. Proven Results
3. Compassion for Teachers and Parents
4. Care Deeply About Student Achievement
5. Thick skin to deal with elected leaders

Why D.Scott Schwartz is Running for C.E.O.
1. He has school based experience, he has 20 years of experience in education, inside schools, public and charter. For the last 10 years, in addition to his position as Principal and Superintendent, he has been volunteering to train and run professional development workshops in public/charter schools across New Jersey. 

2. His systems, methods and strategies have proven results. When he took over a special needs program in New Jersey, the graduation rate was hovering around 75%, when he left in 2019, the graduation rate was 99%. Ten percent of the students enrolled in his program were reading two or more grade levels below non-disabled peers, his literacy coaching program boosted literacy for 100% of those students, and in some cases, students returned to public/charter schools on grade level.

3. He works tirelessly to help teachers. Since the shut down in March 2020, he has been working tirelessly to advocate for teachers and parents, hosting zoom town hall meetings, writing white papers, debating with elected leaders, and answering questions from the Department of Education and the Department of Economic Development.

4. He is dedicated to student learning and achievement. If you wish to read more about student stories, follow the button below.
