Dover, DE (Jan. 18, 2012): The Caesar Rodney Institute, Delaware’s preeminent non-partisan, free-market oriented think tank, today announced the creation of its Center for Excellence in Education.
The Institute is pleased to announce James Hosley will direct the new Center. His background in business and development will help CRI move The First State to a leading position by offering fact-based research and innovative solutions to tackle inefficiencies and shortcomings in Delaware’s educational system.
Through its Centers for Economic Policy and Energy Competitiveness, the Institute has become a strong voice informing Delawareans of alternate public policy solutions and publishing reliable analytics to increase every citizen’s influence over public policy decisions that directly impact their personal situation.
“Education has always been one of our areas of emphasis and given the increasing awareness for the need to improve our system both in terms of efficiency and opportunities for our children, the time is right to start the Center,” Barrett Kidner, Chairman and CEO said. “CRI is dedicated to improving the quality of life, individual liberty, and opportunity for personal fulfillment of all Delawareans. We have aggressive plans to expand our offering and expand the influence of our citizens. Creation of the Center for Excellence in Education is the logical next step in our commitment to Delaware’s future.”
