Leading-edge research is critical to the construction of knowledge necessary for providing resources to students, parents, teachers, administrators, and policymakers who are on the front lines of efforts to find solutions to the challenges confronting schools and other entities of education. Research is also important for transforming thought and perspective, adding a crucial evidence based to debates about how to best achieve equity in education.

The Center provides:

  • Comprehensive research
  • Rapid response data and analysis
  • Program and systems evaluations
  • Policy analysis
  • And so forth

The research provisions are geared to help schools, districts, communities, community-based organizations, regions, states, and so on uncover hidden knowledge, explore root causes, and better understand the complex processes contributing to educational inequities. The Center's research apparatuses also:

  • Investigate promising programs
  • Evaluate supplementary educational programs
  • Contribute to the theories and knowledge of the fields
  • Nurture future scholars

Thus, our work promotes inquiry at multiple levels aimed at expanding knowledge of issues that impact school improvement, teaching and learning, school reform, and education equity.
