About The Regional Educational Laboratories Network
Using the latest in education and child development research, the REL Network aims to serve the educational needs of 10 regions in the US. Each region has a designated laboratory.
The REL program was established in 1965 and since then, its goals have expanded to improve general education improvement on a national level. The research and discoveries made by each laboratory are immediately turned over to policymakers, teachers & practicioners so that our education standards are even higher.
REL Network's services even include teacher training programs and technical assistance.
