The Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE) is one of the seven schools of Stanford University. Its mission is "To continue as a world leader in ground-breaking, cross-disciplinary inquiries that shape educational practices, their conceptual underpinnings, and the professions that serve the enterprise." Many prominent educational theories, policies, and inventions have come from, or been influenced by, the Graduate School of Education, including the Stanford-Binet IQ test and various LeapFrog products.
The Graduate School of Education was founded in 1891 as the Department of the History and Art of Education, and was one of the original twenty-one departments at the newly incorporated Stanford University. It awarded its first Ph.D. in 1916, and in 1917 was renamed the Stanford University School of Education. The Graduate School of Education building and Cubberley Library were built in 1938, and the STEP program was established in 1959. In 2001, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation donated $5 million to establish the School Redesign Network. Stanford established a charter school, the East Palo Alto Academy, which has been managed by its New Schools initiative since then. In 2008, the faculty decided unanimously to make scholarly articles available as open educational resources, the first such move by a school of education. In 2012, the school name was changed officially to the Stanford Graduate School of Education.
The Graduate School of Education offers nine master's and four doctoral degree programs, as well as undergraduate honors and minors programs. As a graduate school of education, the undergraduate programs are not degree programs, but instead offer education-related training for students majoring in other areas, as well as co-terminal master's degrees. The largest program at the School is the Stanford Teacher Education Program, or STEP, which is the only program which offers a teaching credential for K-12 teachers. Unlike many other schools of education, the doctoral programs are academic rather than professional doctorates, and grant Ph.D. instead of Ed.D. degrees.
The School also offers numerous professional development programs and resources for practicing elementary and secondary school teachers. These include the Center for the Support of Excellence in Teaching (CSET), the National Board Resource Center (NBRC), the Problem-Solving Cycle, and Stanford English Learner Education Services.
Since U.S. News & World Report began ranking schools of education, Stanford has frequently been #1 overall in the United States and has received the top peer assessment score of any school every year. The doctoral program admits 7.2% of applicants, the lowest acceptance rate in the country.
