20th Anniversary Entertainment


In early 2011, The Center for Education Reform called upon over 50,000 reformers nationwide to nominate their favorite education reformers who may have some unknown musical talents. Some of reform’s biggest movers and shakers, not to mention close friends and allies, were recommended by their peers and stepped up to form the first-ever musical ensemble of education reform.

The Reformers debuted at CER’s 18th Anniversary in 2011. We’re thrilled the band is back together for a special “Rat Pack” tribute for our 2013 Honorees, with special guest performance by Michael Horn, co-founder of the Clayton Christensen Institute.
