The Center for Education and Training Reform (CETR) was formed as a nonpartisan 501(c)4 nonprofit corporation to promote changes in education and training which improve outcomes. As its first project, CETR has tackled the student loan crisis. CETR is promoting the Student Tax OPtion (STOP) Act of 2021; proposed federal legislation as an initial step in solving the student loan issue.

CETR is governed by a volunteer board and does not contribute to political campaigns.
