Research & Policy

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Research and Policy staff engage in a range of projects to inform both the Institute’s work and the fields of district-level reform and community organizing for school reform. This work includes original research, documentation and evaluation of reform efforts, analyses of current education policies, and the development of tools to share lessons and best practices.

In addition, substantial qualitative and quantitative research is embedded in many of the projects carried out by the Community Organizing and Engagement and District Redesign and Leadership circles of work.
