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
