Bank Street College of Education
The Bank Street College of Education in New York City, often called "America's most trusted name in early education," is a private institution with a public mission—to make learning meaningful for all children. Created in 1916 as the Bureau of Educational Experiments, Bank Street today is a multifaceted learning community organized into three main programmatic divisions: Graduate School, Children's Programs, and Continuing Education. It also includes a Publications and Media Group that prepares learning materials for and about children in a variety of media. Bank Street's mission is to respond to the social and educational concerns of children and youth.
