Experts

"CRPE first grabbed my attention with its work on school finance and equity, and I have continued to rely on its expertise as I have crafted education policy in Congress. CRPE’s balanced, evidence-based, and forward-thinking approach to improving our education system has been invaluable. In all of its work, CRPE boldly takes on the status quo and focuses on what is in the best interest of students.”
–Congressman George Miller, CA, Senior Democrat of the House Education and Workforce Committee

Our researchers testify as expert witnesses before Congress and state legislatures, serve as advisors to local and national organizations, present at national meetings and conferences and frequently provide interviews and written commentary on complex and emerging issues. Together our team provides breadth of experience and depth of expertise on a range of education issues.
