Navigating Complex Issues in Public Education

Together our team provides breadth of experience and depth of expertise on a range of education issues. As a nonpartisan research center based at the University of Washington Bothell, with connections that span from teachers to superintendents to state legislators across the country, we bring a unique lens to how the various parts of the education system interact with each other. Our work has been featured in a diverse list of media sources, including PBS Newshour, The Economist, and The New York Times. CRPE experts can provide commentary, interviews, story ideas, background information, or serve as expert sources.
