Who We Are

Founded in 1981 by educators seeking a return to respect and professionalism, PEI was formed as a statewide, non-profit education association.

We are dedicated to seeking positive changes for Iowa education and believe all educators should conduct themselves in an exemplary manner to be treated with respect as the role models our students desire and deserve.
