With the goal of enhancing children’s learning through the support of exemplary teaching, the Dolores Kohl Education Foundation was launched in 1972 as a private, not-for-profit international operating foundation, which creates and directs its own programs. A catalyst for excellence in education, the Foundation has developed numerous education and arts programs in the United States and abroad. The Foundation currently directs early childhood teaching awards and an urban early literacy program that includes a traveling children’s museum-on-wheels. The Foundation is located at 1770 First Street, Suite 500, in Highland Park, Illinois.
Dolores Kohl, President and CEO, is the founder of the Dolores Kohl Education Foundation. Kohl’s work focuses on early childhood education, with a current emphasis on literacy efforts for low-income urban families. Published works include Gladly We Teach; Ideas in Social Studies; Ideas in Math; Teachers’ Centers in the '80s; Language Arts, and Teaching Soviet Children.
