The Landscape of Education




Summary:  San Juan Diego Institute believes that education is a fundamental human good. Along with the most basic necessities of life (food, water, shelter, security), education is a right that all humans have, by virtue of their innate dignity, to develop and grow into productive members of their families and broader communities. San Juan Diego Institute provides transformative change in education by partnering with local and national organizations that research, target, deploy and evaluate models for educating students from lower-economic and minority populations.


  • We focus on and partner with organizations dedicated to:


1) Improving School Attendance

2) Improving Learning Outcomes

3) Increasing Education Options and Access

“As an Executive Director, I know I need an outside perspective to really gauge the operations and effectiveness of Fraternus, but there are so many voices that getting trustworthy help can be overwhelming.  Everyone has advice to give you (and consulting contracts to sign) but finding someone who really understands your mission and methods sometimes seems hopeless.  SJDI was just what we needed.  Almost two years out from their original assessment, I can see that their efforts and guidance has helped us reshape our efforts so that we know that the effectiveness of the mission is on par with our zeal for it.  We would not be there without SJDI.”
