What We Do

We Champion Key Education Issues

  • Ensuring preschool readiness
  • ­Increasing investment in and access to high-quality early care and education
  • ­Ensuring effective teacher preparation and teaching 
  • Increasing high school graduation rates
  • Better preparing students for post-secondary education and careers
  • Building a strong middle skills workforce

We champion these issues by:

  • Conducting and publishing policy research 
  • Promoting best practices in Prek-12 school improvement
  • Convening and engaging stakeholders to build support for systemic reform
  • Informing parents, teachers, businesses, and community organizations about the meaning, impact and progress of emerging reform initiatives
  • Monitoring policy and program developments by state leaders and administrators

Our work goes beyond framing issues, researching best practices, and recommending policies and practices to improve education. We focus efforts at all levels of the system to help “transform policies into results” in the classroom. We do this with focused interventions and by connecting and engaging stakeholders to support and advocate solutions that will yield lasting, positive results.
