Approach to Research & Analysis

We strive to transform the way people think about problems and solutions in public education through research and analysis based on high standards and common sense.


We work closely with city and state leaders who are trying to improve their community’s public schools. Our ideas and research results are transforming school districts, opening up new approaches to instruction, and helping educators make more thoughtful and effective uses of public funds.
