Research Division of Marzano Research Acquired by BNP Education Partners, LLC
Centennial, Colo. (July 1, 2019)—Marzano Research, a premier educational research and professional development organization, announced today the sale of its research division to BNP Education Partners, LLC, a woman-owned small business headquartered in Portland, Ore. BNP Education Partners is operating the new organization under the Marzano Research name.
The publications and professional development division of Marzano Research remains a wholly owned subsidiary of Solution Tree, Inc. and has been renamed and rebranded as Marzano Resources. Marzano Resources will continue to provide educators throughout North America and globally with an extensive range of professional learning opportunities, including printed and digital resources, events and on-site training, with an emphasis on the Marzano High Reliability Schools framework for school improvement and The New Art and Science of Teaching framework for instruction.
“This transaction creates the ideal opportunity to strengthen and fully realize the impact of both organizations in education,” explained Jeffrey C. Jones, co-founder and CEO of Marzano Resources. “Each company will now be able to focus on their distinct but equally important missions and, ultimately, create even better professional learning experiences for educators.”
Danette Parsley, CEO of Marzano Research, agreed, adding, “Robert J. Marzano has been an important mentor to me, and I am honored to lead a company with his name. As we take the reins of Marzano Research, we will continue to focus on building relationships in the field and ensuring excellence in our educator-centered improvement services.”
Robert J. Marzano will continue to serve as chief academic officer of Marzano Resources as well as a strategic advisor to BNP Education Partners. Staff for both organizations will remain in their current offices in Centennial, Colo.
