The Place-Based Education Evaluation Collaborative (PEEC) provides evaluation support to member organizations with the goal of improving place-based education program models and evaluation techniques. The PEEC has several member organizations all of whom have programs focusing on sustainability. The four PEEC programs evaluated were the CO-SEED Project, the Community Mapping Program, the Sustainable Schools Project, and A Forest for Every Classroom. This externally conducted cross-program study focuses on the strengths and challenges facing member programs and trends in teacher practices. Data were primarily collected through interviews and focus groups, with program documents and observations providing additional data. The results were used to improve programs and evaluation resources.
