Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education

For more than two decades, we have been helping educators, administrators, and policymakers do a better job of educating elementary and secondary school students to prepare them for life after high school graduation.

Our education researchers have rich content expertise in K–12 education, particularly in today’s most urgent issues. Recent projects have focused on closing achievement gaps, assessing college and career readiness, analyzing student transcripts and course taking patterns, measuring graduation and dropout trends, developing useful web tools, and helping educators understand and use data to improve schools.
