Stakeholder engagement is central to our policy work. We collaborate with government agencies, non-profits, foundations, and advocacy groups to meet the demands of education reforms and lead innovation. From research to implementation to evaluation, we work with our clients to identify the technical, financial, and logistical issues associated with policies and programs. We carefully consider the potential implications and consequences (both intended and unintended) of the various options.
Our policy work includes:
- Educator Effectiveness and Human Capital Systems: Supporting the implementation of systems that supply high-performing educators, improve educator effectiveness, and recognize outstanding performance
- Early Warning Response and Intervention Systems: Assisting in the use of data to identify students at risk of dropping out of school and to support these students with targeted interventions
- School and District Accountability Tools: Facilitating the development of school report cards and indexes using student data to drive teacher and leader success
- Program Evaluation: Employing quantitative and qualitative methods to determine the efficacy of educational programs and fidelity of implementation
We identify strategies to improve education and translate them into accessible, actionable information for policymakers.
