Historical Note

The Institute for Educational Transformation was founded in 1991 by Professor Hugh Sockett and is based in the Graduate School of Education at George Mason University. The purpose of the IET was to support teachers and other educators in conducting research to improve the quality of learning in public schools. The IET also served to build up funds for the Educational Quality Fund, consisting of grants to be given out to teacher researchers. In 1999, the academic IET was abolished and redesigned as a program in the Graduate School of Education named "Masters in New Professional Studies (Teaching)."
